Clayton KershawThis year’s Los Angeles Dodgers team is full of big personalities and players that are very active on social media. One of the lower profile star players on the Dodgers is reigning Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw, who’s known more for his philanthropy rather than his self-promotion.

According to Josh Tucker of Dodger Insider, the left-handed ace will be seen in a different capacity this upcoming Sunday:

Clayton Kershaw will appear on Sunday’s episode of New Girl set to air on Fox directly after Super Bowl XLVIII.

New Girl is a Fox sitcom starring Zooey Deschanel that revolves around a woman living in a loft with three other men. The show is a favorite of Kershaw and his wife, Ellen, prompting him to accept the cameo on the post-Super Bowl episode. Kershaw has shown himself to be a professional on the camera back in 2012, when he and catcher A.J. Ellis spent some time on screen as a skit for the Dodgers titled, Between Two Palm Trees. 

After signing a seven-year, $215 million deal to remain with the Dodgers, Kershaw can now be considered a face of the franchise and could prompt more of these cameos in the future. It’s unlikely that the 25-year-old takes up acting as he’s coming off a season in which he went 16-9 with a 1.83 ERA and 232 strikeouts.

Dodger fans will be able to see their ace on their television besides dominating on the mound.

    OK I didn’t read any of the other comments beasuce, unlike when I read your blog early in the day (when I only have to look at a dozen or so comments to make sure I’m not being repetitive), there are now 214 OF THEM! Anyway, I let my first daughter cry it out. She is now four and a little on the anxious side. There could be lots of reasons for this, (like simply, she just takes after me), but there is this little nagging thought in the back of my mind that maybe crying it out was not such a good idea. With my second daughter who is now almost 2 1/2 I decided to go to her whenever she cried. Actually, I didn’t decide, it just happened. She was born with a VSD, a small hole in her heart, and at first I was worried that somehow screaming would be bad for her. My thoughts about this were exacerbated by the fact that as an infant she did a lot of erratic panting in her sleep which I found unsettling. Then once she got older and the hole in her heart closed I just really liked snuggling with her at night. She’s our last little one, so maybe that had something to do with it. By the time she was a year and a half she was pretty verbal and I couldn’t let her cry it out when she was wailing, Mama, cuddle me! in a mournful voice at the top of her lungs. I think that all of the sleep training stuff sounds good on paper, but you just have to go with your gut and do what feels right for you.
