Transcript for LA Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw celebrates World Series win
The city of Los Angeles, I know, they're still celebrating. The dodgers crowned world champions in a thrilling six-game series and joining us now, one of the superstars who came up big in order to bring that trophy back home to L.A. After more than 30 year, first time world series champ Clayton Kershaw. Good morning. It is wonderful to be with you and have you with us and I have to say, there are so many people who are happy for you. You are considered in many ways the heart and soul of dodger have you gotten used to the phrase world series champ? Has it sunk in. No, it sounds so good to hear that. Every time somebody says that it just keeps sinking in a little more and more. Thank you guys for having me today and it's a crazy feeling to think that after 32 years, you know, the Los Angeles dodgers have won a world series and I got to be a part of it and for those fans back homere just so excited that y'all have waited a long time for this and we're just so happy to get to do this. It's incredible. Well, we're happy that you're joins us. I doubt you even went to sleep last night. Still out -- No sleep, no, no sleep. It is great to see you again, 13 seasons in the major, multiple cy young awards and now your first world series championship so take us back to that moment. What were your feelings and how was it to have your family there with you? Yeah, it was amazing. You know, during this season especially with everything that's going on with the pandemic, you know, I'm from Dallas so to get to have family and friends in the stands for this game is -- what a blessing it was for them to be a part of it. Like youaid there's so many people out there that I've had so much support over the years so to have a small faction of it there and I was sitting in the bullpen and to be a world series champion, that's what you work for. All those accolades mean nothing unless you win that big trophy at the end, so to get toe that, to get to celebrate with your teammates, that's what it's all about. We could see it all in your smile last night. What a different kind of season. Weird season it was, though, fans not in the stands for most of the season. You guys were in the bubble. What was the hardest part about that and how did it impact your game? Well, you know, I think with everything going on in the world and being able to have a baseball season in general, you know, I don't thinkhere's anything to complain about. Yeah, we've been in a bubble for almost four weeks now and, you know, it's been the bubble I the stadium and back every day but you know what, it was worth it. We won and we got to have a baseball season. You know, if you told me in April and may we were going to get to have a baseball season and I would get to win a world series I wouavave stayed in a bubble the whole time so it's we're excited to get out of here and go home but it's just an incredible feeling right now. And beyond your family we heard you were able to have friends join new the bubble for some time and your lifelon friends, you had a group text, dedicated group text called best friends so after the win what did you text each other last night? Man, they were so excited. They probably haven't slept they're so happy to be there and be a part of it and I haven't seen them yet but they got to come to the game at least and I think today we're going to go home and get to see them so it's just -- we're just really excited about everything that goes with winning the world series and they are too. Before you go, we want to say you are a champ on and off the field. You and your beautiful wife we saw her on the field with your family, but what you all have done with the Kershaw challenge which has raised over $12 million since it began in 2011 for at risk children and families all around the world. What more can you tell us about this foundation? Well, that's what's so great about getting to play baseball and, you know, now that we've won a world series maybe it will help our platformer and leverage that to help kiddos. It started with one girl that my wife Ellen met in Africa named hope and it's turned into what it is today which is helping a toifferent organizations all across the world including here and L.A. And Dallas and Zambia and Dominican Republic and trying to help kiddos so I think with winning a world series hly I can raise more awareness for what we're trying to do and maybe raise more money for those kiddos too. We hope that will be the case thank you so much. This is -- Thank you, guy. Clayton, congratulation. I know. That's so cool he joined us this
