Ahead of Mother’s Day, Mother’s Day… Kershaw on the mound “It’s the biggest sadness…”

Los Angeles Dodgers’ eternal ace Clayton Kershaw (35) said goodbye to his mother. He received the sad news a day before Mother’s Day in the United States, but he normally carries out the scheduled pitching schedule. 

American media, including the ‘LA Times’ reported on the 15th (Korean time) that Kershaw’s mother, Marian Tombow, passed away on the 14th. Kershaw’s wife, Ellen, made the announcement at the opening of a ballpark founded by Kershaw’s charitable foundation in Inglewood on the 15th. Since this is Mother’s Day in the United States, Kershaw’s sorrow will be indescribable. 

Kershaw’s parents divorced when he was 10 years old, and Kershaw was raised by his mother in a Dallas suburb. Even though he was in a poor environment, he spared no effort for his son by sending Kershaw to a private school. He is the creator of Kershaw today. 

“Kershaw grew up with a baseball in his hand. Her mother raised her with her love. She dedicated herself to getting her son to the ballpark, sitting in the front row of the ballpark cheering unobtrusively and making notes in the scorebook. There was no greater joy for her than to see her son grow up to be a man, a philanthropist, a father, and a baseball player.” 

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts also said, ahead of the game against the San Diego Padres, “The death of a parent is the hardest thing. Kershaw looks fine today, but his heart will be heavy. However, I know that he will start the game on the 17th as scheduled,” he said. 

It is to start as scheduled in the second game of a three-game series against the Minnesota Twins at Dodger Stadium on the 17th. On this day, it seems that he will have a farewell time with his mother by leaving the place for a while through a funeral leave after the mound. Major league funeral leave is given from a minimum of 3 days to a maximum of 7 days. 스포츠토토

Nothing else, my mother passed away. It is normal to cancel her appearance and start with the funeral. Even if you look at Kershaw’s position or status in the team, no one can say anything if he cancels the mound. However, Kershaw stuck to the scheduled pitching schedule. 

“It’s not surprising,” manager Roberts said of Kershaw’s willingness to pitch. In 2013, Kershaw’s father Christopher passed away on April 29, but on May 4, before the San Francisco Giants, Kershaw pitched as planned, throwing 3 hits, 3 walks, 5 strikeouts and 1 run in 7 innings. 

Kershaw, who learned diligence and moderation from his mother, who supported him despite his difficult circumstances, grew up to be a three-time major league pitcher. He is 35 years old, and this year, he is playing an active role reminiscent of his heyday with 8 games (49⅔ innings) 6 wins, 2 losses, an average ERA of 2.36 and 56 strikeouts. /waw@osen.co.kr
