Clayton Kershaw has become the first two-time winner of the Dodgers’ Roy Campanella Award, given to the Dodger player who best exemplifies the spirit and leadership of the late Hall of Fame catcher. Dodger uniformed personnel vote on the winner.
Kershaw previously won the award last year (above, he’s pictured with today’s birthday boy, Tommy Lasorda). Before him, the honor has gone to Rafael Furcal (2006), Russell Martin (2007), James Loney (2008), Juan Pierre (2009), Jamey Carroll (2010), Matt Kemp (2011) and A.J. Ellis (2012).
