For several years Clayton Kershaw has been donating money to Kershaw's Challenge based upon how many strike outs he has throughout the season, and he continues that tradition today. Best yet, fans can also join Clayton in doing the same thing.
Continuing a relationship with GiveStep.com, fans can pledge a certain dollar amount for each strike out Kershaw throws this season. For instance, a $1.00 pledge (based on last year stats) would mean a $239.00 donation to Kershaw's Challenge. Go here to find out more or to sign up.
UPDATE: BTW, you can donate as little at a penny ($0.01) a strike out if you like. Remember, every cent counts. Sign Up Here.Via a press release:
