Clayton Kershaw has funny reason for Dodgers showing up early to ballpark
Los Angeles Dodgers players have fallen into a nice habit this season of showing up to the ballpark plenty early on game day, and Clayton Kershaw has an entertaining theory about why that has been the case.
Kershaw told reporters on Tuesday that the 2019 Dodgers, as a whole, arrive earlier to the ballpark than any team he has been a part of. When asked if that proves they are determined to win a championship and are working harder than ever, Kershaw said he thinks it’s just because most of them want free food.

Motivated to win?
Determined to study their opponents?
Desperate to end the drought?
"A lot of young guys," he said, "who want lunch."

Even if some guys are just looking for a free lunch, showing up early is always a good thing. It’s also worth noting that Yasiel Puig now plays for a different team, and we all know how much trouble he had getting to Dodger Stadium on time. That probably brought the average time of arrival a bit earlier for the team as a whole.
