Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw's mom dies day before Mother's Day

May 15, 2023

The mother of Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw died on Saturday, his wife announced over the weekend at the unveiling of two youth baseball fields in Inglewood, California.

Ellen Kershaw shared the news of Marianne Tombaugh’s passing at the unveiling of two Dodgers Dreamfields over the weekend.

"Clayton grew up with a baseball in his hand ready to play a game in a sandlot or on a ballfield just like this one on a moment’s notice," she said during the dedication.

"One person in particular cultivated that love in Clayton, his dear mama, Marianne, who moved mountains to get him to baseball practice and games. She sat front row cheering him on – not so subtly and kept score in a book to keep her nerves at bay."
