Dodgers Ross Stripling Talks Clayton Kershaw’s Ping Pong For Purpose

Ross Stripling tells all ahead of tonight’s Ping Pong for Purpose, put on by Clayton Kershaw.

Dodgers right-hander Ross Stripling joined MLB Network Radio to discuss tonight’s ‘Ping Pong 4 Purpose’ event held annually by Clayton Kershaw’s charity, Kershaw’s Challenge.

Ross Stripling discusses more than just the tournament itself, though, also discussing the invaluable impact left-hander Clayton Kershaw has had on the community.

Who is Good at Ping Pong?

Stripling tells all! We all know that Clayton Kershaw loves ping pong and according to Strip:

He’s [Kershaw] a stud. I’ve played Clayton a hundred times in my career, and I think I’ve only beaten him once.

Ross also went on to explain that Corey Seager can really play. Surprise, surprise.

Kershaw’s Challenge

Stripling had nothing but praise for Kershaw’s charity work, as expected. Kershaw’s Challenge has been running Ping Pong 4 Purpose for quite some time now and it remains the Dodgers’ biggest charity event that is embraced by the organization.

Clayton is just unbelievable around the community. He does things in the Dominican and in Africa. Clayton is very giving of his time and his money and his wife Ellen is as well. It’s an awesome event and it gets bigger and better every year.


The event takes place tonight and we will see who emerges victorious in the tournament as well as how much is raised for the community.
