Ellen Melson Kershaw
Ellen Melson or Ellen Kershaw is the wife of L.A Dodgers Clayton Kershaw. Ever since the couple tied the knot in 2010 at Highland Park Presbyterian Church following a reception at Royal Oaks Country Club.
Ellen became Mrs. Kershaw and now most people know her simply as Ellen Kershaw.
To talk about Ellen in just a few words is just impossible, and don’t get us started on her better half. These two lovebirds have known each other since they were teenagers.

Her husband since 2010 is best known for his baffling curveball but he sees baseball just a one way to live out his passion. That is how in 2011 Ellen and Clayton launched “Kershaw’s Challenge” a Christ-centered, others-focused organization.
In addition to their volunteering and humanitarian work, in 2012, Ellen and her hubby also teamed up by writing their book, Arise: Live Out Your Faith and Dreams on Whatever Field You Find Yourself.
The book talks about their Christian faith.
