Clayton Kershaw will no longer be wearing the number 54 that he used during his debut performance against the Cardinals. Instead he will be using Mark Sweeney's old number 22, which happens to be the number of his all-time favorite player- Will Clark. Yes, that's Will Clark the former Giant.
Before you start hyperventilating with thoughts of curses and jinxes take a deep breath. Wikipedia reminds us that Will Clark played for the Texas Rangers from 1994 to 1998 (his home team) and Kershaw's admiration comes from that time period. Now I can breath. Goodness knows that's no way to start your Dodger career by honoring a former Giant.
Good luck tonight. Dodger Nation is watching.
