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.
The Braves GM delves into several topics, including Josh Donaldson, as the final month of the season begins.
“If our best team is with Austin Riley in the outfield and Josh Donaldson at third base, and that makes sense, we’ll do that. … There’s clearly room for both guys; we can see a team with both guys. 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.”

Remember when the Braves traded Victor Caratini for Emilio Bonifacio and James Russell?
