Philadelphia Phillies manager Gabe Kapler is one of many California residents who lost their home to raging fires. And while he’s happy his family is safe, he wants to raise awareness for those who are less fortunate.
Keep talking about it,” Kapler, who is still in Philadelphia, told The Athletic.

Kapler’s home in Malibu, which is about a mile from the Pacific Ocean
“Everything is replaceable. There’s nothing … it’s all just stuff. A home was stuff. To so many people, that home is their shelter and their safe haven. But everything we lost is replaceable. Our family is going to be fine. The love and support is incredible.”
At least 42 people have been confirmed dead from the fires that have ravaged Northern and Southern California. It’s always someone you don’t know or never heard of, and this time it feels much more real.
So sad and tragic.
