Braves pitch in for Donaldson’s charity event

Josh Donaldson hosted a charity event on Thursday night, drawing a large host of his teammates as participants in the event. The veteran is fitting right in with the Atlanta clubhouse, and is making a difference in the community with his foundation.

Each of the charity bowling events that Donaldson had staged over the previous four years benefited the Boys & Girls Club. Proceeds from this year’s event will go to the newly created Josh Donaldson Foundation, which helps provide underprivileged children as well as youth from single-parent homes with opportunities to participate in activities that offer access to sports, mentorships and positive life experiences.

Problem is, one guy’s a free agent. And I expect the market for him to be strong because of the year that he’s had and what he’s done.”
