Marianne Tombaugh Obituary, Death – Pitcher #ClaytonKershaw of the Los Angeles #DODGERS has lost his mother.
According to Ellen Kershaw, Marianne Tombaugh passed away on Saturday. During the dedication of a newly renovated kids baseball field in Inglewood, which the pitcher’s foundation helped fund, the pitcher’s wife brought up the issue.
Kershaw’s parents split up when he was 10 years old, and his mother took him in and raised him in a Dallas suburb. Christopher Kershaw, his father, passed away in 2013. “Clayton grew up with a baseball in his hand, ready to play a game in a sandlot or on a ballfield just like this one,” Ellen Kershaw said at the dedication. It was Clayton’s doting mother Marianne who did everything she could to bring her kid to baseball games and practices. She was in the front row, loudly shouting for him and keeping score in a ledger to calm her worries.
In the words of Ellen Kershaw: “She experienced no greater joy than watching her son grow into the man, the philanthropist, the father, and the ballplayer that he is today.” Kershaw and his wife are parents to four young adults. On Sunday, manager Dave Roberts confirmed that Kershaw would start Tuesday’s game at home against the Minnesota Twins.
“I’m sure this is a day that he has a heavy heart,” Roberts stated on Mother’s Day. Losing a parent is one of life’s most difficult experiences, according to the speaker. After his start, Roberts mentioned the possibility of the 35-year-old pitcher taking bereavement leave. #RIP Every time he pitches, Clayton Kershaw deserves a standing ovation. The fans at Dodger Stadium are never afraid to show him some love. One of the faces of the team since 2008, he has racked up 203 career wins and 15 years in the majors.
He has also rewritten a traumatic postseason record and won a World Series. Still, he won’t get a greeting like the one he got on Tuesday night very often. After the loss of his mother Marianne Tombaugh on Saturday, Ellen Kershaw said that her husband Clayton will face the Minnesota Twins with a strong arm but a heavy heart. Age and the cause of death were not disclosed.
