Dodgers: Video of Clayton Kershaw’s High School Perfect Game Unearthed

Clayton Kershaw has always exemplified dominance on the mound. At a time, he was the best pitcher in the sport and will likely end his career in the argument of the greatest left-handed pitcher of all-time. He was a sought after prospect straight out of high school and the Dodgers were fortunate enough to have picked him up in the draft.

Now a video has resurfaced of Clayton Kershaw tossing a perfect game in high school by striking out all fifteen batters he faced.

While Kershaw has yet to accomplish this feat in the big leagues, he did toss a no-hitter on June 18, 2014 against the Colorado Rockies. However, it could be pointed out that the lefty threw 6 perfect innings before Hanley Ramirez’s error allowed a base runner, which outperforms his high school game.

Kershaw epitomizes professionalism every time he steps on the mound and has always had the talent — enough to get him a sizable bonus out of the draft. He is now forever engrained in Dodgers lore and baseball history as one of the greatest to ever do it and he isn’t done yet.
