Kershaw named Roy Campanella Award recipient

SAN FRANCISCO -- Clayton Kershaw was named the winner of the eighth annual Roy Campanella Award, given to the Dodger who best exemplifies the spirit and leadership of the late Hall of Fame Brooklyn catcher.

The award, voted upon by Dodgers uniform personnel, will be presented to Kershaw by Campanella's daughter, Joni Campanella Roan, during pregame ceremonies Saturday prior to the 6:10 p.m. PT game against the Rockies.

Previous winners of the award are Rafael Furcal, Russell Martin, James Loney, Juan Pierre, Jamey Carroll, Matt Kemp and A.J. Ellis.

The Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation will make a financial contribution to support the Roy and Roxie Campanella Scholarship Program at California State University, Northridge (CSUN) and its Department of Physical Therapy at the College of Health and Human Development.
