Worry not, Dodgers fans, Clayton Kershaw has remained grounded despite his record-breaking new contract.
The 25-year-old Los Angeles ace, who inked a $215 million, seven-year contract last week, discussed his super chill celebration.
"Had some buddies over, played some ping pong, and grilled out." -@ClaytonKersh22 on how he celebrated his extension. Of course.

Typically low-key, Kershaw has said that talking about the fortune he earned is “is a a little bit uncomfortable for me." Even though it's only been a few days since he signed the deal, Kershaw says he and his wife have some ideas for what they'll do with their millions. The Kershaws are active in several charities and support after-school programs in Los Angeles and Dallas.
A big ping-pong fan, Kershaw also sponsors a charity tournament.
"Ellen and I understand the effects we can have on a lot of people with this money," Kershaw said. "We realize to whom much is given much is expected, and that’s what we’re going to try and do."
