Clayton Kershaw joined Chris Rose and Kevin Millar on MLB Network's "Intentional Talk" Tuesday to discuss a multitude of topics. The lefty is always a fun interview and didn't disappoint. Below are a few of the highlights from the interview.
On playing youth baseball:
"I dominated machine pitch, those four-seamers right over the heart [of the plate]. You know I think I had a few homers in a game one time. I got the Will Clark Award, first baseman scooping the ball and that’s probably where I got [number] 22 from, that’s where it all started."
On visiting A.J. Ellis in Wisconsin this past offseason:
"For whatever you want to say about AJ, he’s big in Wisconsin. He’s real big. He’s a seven up there. … He’s a Wisconsin seven, LA four."
On Ellis being in better shape in 2016:
"Sneaky, better body this year. … He worked hard. He lost some weight. He looks good right now. He’s a young man’s 35. He’s looking pretty solid."
