The wave has become a popular part of baseball games in recent history.
When fans have nothing better to do, they choose to get into it by doing the wave, which travels around the ballpark at a very quick pace and doesn’t stop until all of them get tired of doing it.
Rarely though, do we see a player start the wave.
Kershaw often raises his arms when he comes set to deliver a pitch.
Yet something different happened recently when he raised his arms.
One fan tweeted a video of Kershaw raising his arms and the fans all doing the wave in unison.

Commence The Wave
That’s one way to start the wave.
Usually, it’s someone in the crowd who gets bored and decides they have nothing better to do than to start the wave.
But it appears that Kershaw is a fan of the wave and wanted to start something to get the fans into the game, even if on accident.
It’s good to show appreciation for the fans and be the one to get them involved in an age-old trend.
Kershaw is very much a man of the people and knows what it takes to get the crowd back into a ballgame.
His pitching can certainly do that, but so can one motion of his arms that somehow, some way ended up triggering the wave and getting everybody at Dodger Stadium on their feet.
Kershaw knows what the fans want and was more than happy to give that to them.
