Austin Green is a journalism student at Biola University. He grew up in a family of diehard Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles Lakers fans, and has been blogging about sports since 2014. He has been at Medium Large since 2018, contributing mainly to DodgerBlue.com. Austin has also worked as a digital production intern at NBC Los Angeles and as sports editor and managing editor of The Chimes, Biola's award-winning student newspaper.
When not doing homework or watching and writing about sports, Austin enjoys volunteering at local church and missions organizations, going to the beach or coffee shops, and working on his horribly broken jump shot.
Favorite Dodger: This is tricky for me, but ultimately I cannot pick against Clayton Kershaw. I'm lucky enough to be present for two of the greatest games of his career, his no-hitter in June 2014 and his eight-inning start later that season that clinched the division against the San Francisco Giants and sealed his MVP campaign. (I don't remember what happened in the playoffs that year, though.) He's the player I'll tell my kids and grandkids about someday, and brag about getting to watch live plenty of times as they look up his highlights on YouTube or whatever they are going to use for that stuff in the future.
Favorite Dodgers Memory: Aside from the Kershaw games I mentioned above, my favorite Dodgers memories come during that magical 2017 season when I watched and attended even more games that summer than I had in years. That postseason, my family and I attended Game 1 of the NLCS, then I missed a mandatory meeting for a campus group I was involved in to watch Kiké Hernandez take over Game 5. That next week, I ditched class and drove home to watch the first Dodgers World Series game of my life with my dad, who made me a Dodger fan when I was six years old. Despite the outcome, that 2017 season embodies everything I love about being a fan of baseball and the Dodgers.
