No Way! I have never heard of that. That is amazing!
Yes it is. He went to the same high school as Lion QB Matt Stafford(Highland Park, TX) and the perfect game was actually against my rival high school(Arlington Martin--Ben Grieve and Todd Van Poppel went there)...
"Kershaw was 13-0 his senior year in 2006 with a 0.77 ERA and 139 strikeouts in 64 innings. He made national news in a playoff win over Arlington Martin HS by pitching an all-strikeout perfect game. He was the Gatorade National Player of the Year."
We met him last year at a Ranger Banquet(he was being presented an award for Texas Professional Player of the Year). Nice kid..amazing upside and future.
