Current Los Angeles Dodger Clayton Kershaw took home the Warren Spahn Award, which is based on a pitcher's wins, strikeouts and ERA. Kershaw led the league in all three categories. We saw Kershaw pitch in the 2005 Area Code Baseball Games in Long Beach, Calif. At the time Kershaw was listed at 6-foot-3, 210 pounds and the only diffence now is that he is listed at 215 pounds. We remember the hard-throwing lefty on the same team as Brandon Belt (Giants) and Jordan Walden (Angels).
Kershaw is the front runner for the National League Cy Young Award and it would come as a surprise if he did not get it.
