Several Dodgers Join MLB Superstars In Softball Game To Aid California Fires

Pepperdine is the site, and Justin Turner and Joc Pederson are the Los Angeles Dodgers involved. On Sunday, they will gather with other sports and entertainment celebrities to play softball to benefit California fire victims. Major League Baseball and many of it’s players have done a good thing here.

Moreover, some of the biggest names in baseball will be out to help aid. Christian Yelich, Ryan Braun, Mike Moustakas, Eric Hosmer, Tyler Skaggs, and Jack Flaherty are a few of the big names scheduled to appear. Yelich, Braun, and Moustakas were kicking around ideas via text message to learn how they could help victims.

“We were talking about, ‘Hey, we need to do something to help — we need to give back,'” Yelich said. “We didn’t know exactly what that was going to be or how we were going to do it.”

The result was their “California Strong” campaign in conjunction with the YMCA of Southeast Ventura County. The men started a fundraising campaign, which had netted nearly $450,000 in donations as of this week. They sold T-shirts and other memorabilia over the holidays to raise more funds, and they organized a charity auction.

Equally important, two NFL Quarterbacks will be on hand. Both Jared Goff of the Los Angeles Rams and Baker Mayfield of the Cleveland Browns are the big football personalities scheduled to be involved. Former NBA superstar Reggie Miller is slated to be on hand. Jamie Foxx, Adam Sandler, Charlie Sheen, and Rob Riggle are also expected to make an appearances.

All proceeds will go directly to fire victims, it is reported. This is a great thing.
