|I had a chance to see Kershaw pitch in 2008|
So Kershaw struck out 245 batters during the course of the regular season, which is about to end in a couple of days. This translates to about $24,500. For a baseball player making millions, this probably is a little more than pocket change. But I suspect that this is only a portion of what Clayton and Ellen will ultimately give to Arise Africa. And who knows how many others learned about the program because of the efforts of the Kershaws to bring attention to the issue.
So here's hoping that Kershaw does indeed win the Cy Young award, not only for himself but also for all the many efforts to address hunger and poverty in sub-Saharan Africa (and around the world).
