MLB, players’ union donate to Bahamas relief on Clemente Day

NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball and the players’ union have made a joint donation of $210,000 to help with relief and recovery in the Bahamas after the destruction caused by Hurricane Dorian.

The donation was made Wednesday, recognized as Roberto Clemente Day in the majors. The late Pittsburgh Hall of Fame wore No. 21 and was known for his humanitarian efforts.

The money will divided into $70,000 donations to Project Hope, Water Mission and SBP.

WEEI/Red Sox Jimmy Fund Telethon

WEEI (the Red Sox radio partner) has more than a few horrible people working for them and the Sox are not perfect either.  But every year they raise millions of dollars for a truly great cause (Dana Farber at Charity Navigator)

The 18th annual WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon presented by Arbella Insurance Foundation is taking place this Tuesday and Wednesday in support of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Over the span of 36 hours and two Boston Red Sox games, the broadcast will feature inspiring stories from patients, doctors, researchers, and athletes. In 2018, the event raised an incredible $4.4 million to support Dana-Farber’s lifesaving mission.

There are any number of ways to try and make our little blue ball hurtling through space better.  This is but one but does have a baseball link so I’ve shared it here.
