Sometimes it seems like 90% of what we write about players off-the-field is negative. Thank God for that other 10%:
Free-agent shortstop Miguel Tejada has traveled to Haiti
to help the victims of last week’s devastating earthquake. Tejada, a
six-time All-Star and former Oriole, arranged for a van full of food,
water and medicine to be taken to Port-au-Prince on Sunday, and the Dominican Republic native took a helicopter to the Haitian capital. An estimated 100,000
or more people have died in Tuesday’s magnitude-7.0 quake.
Way to go, Miguel and everyone else who is wading into the nightmare that is post-quake Haiti to lend aide and assistance.
