Clayton Kershaw’s No-Hitter (June 18, 2014)

You know that list I mentioned earlier of current and former Dodgers players I’d like to meet? Well, Clayton Kershaw is at the top.

Kershaw is definitely one of my favorite players; he has so much talent and does so much good off the field as well. He recently hosted his annual Ping Pong 4 Purpose event on Aug. 8 at Dodger Stadium.

Nonetheless, I remember watching Kershaw’s no-hitter and being on the edge of my seat because I was so nervous. I’m still pretty salty about the fact that this outing could have and should have been a perfect game, but a no-hitter is obviously a great accomplishment for any pitcher.

Listening to Vin call Kershaw’s no-hitter and seeing the joy on the Dodgers players’ faces as well as the AJ Ellis/Clayton Kershaw embrace is one of my favorite moments in a game that I’ve seen live. Also, can we talk about how cute he and his wife are together?! Seeing her in the seats with a big smile on her face, so proud of her hubby … adorable!

Vin calling it all just made the no-hitter and all the moments of celebration that much more legendary.

The banner that the Dodgers unveiled underneath Vin Scully’s press box earlier this month says it best:

I miss you already, Vin, and I always will.
