Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw Becomes 1st Pitcher Since 1968 to Be National League MVP
Clayton Kershaw still doesn’t have a World Series ring, but he received the ultimate consolation prize Thursday.
Kershaw was voted the most valuable player of the National League, becoming the first NL pitcher to win the award since Bob Gibson in 1968.

The Dodgers’ last NL MVP was Kirk Gibson, who won the award in 1988.
