The Los Angeles Dodgers ace has accomplished many things on the baseball field and even has three National League Cy Young Awards to prove it.

But to Kershaw, what matters more than his accolades on the field is the impact he makes off of the field.

"For me, it's about the legacy you leave off the field. It's about how many people I can affect with the platform God gave me," Kershaw wrote.

"Being a Christian means you have to keep reminding yourself that you're supposed to stand out, you're supposed to be different, you're supposed to act boldly in your faith," he added. "It's not easy, but it's worth the fight."

Kershaw chose Colossians 3:23 as his Bible verse to highlight.

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters," the verse reads.
