When Trevor Bauer realized the scope of the postponements and cancellations about to affect the sports world, as MLB suspended spring training and delayed Opening Day on Thursday, he knew he wanted to do something for the thousands of stadium workers impacted by the stoppages due to the coronavirus outbreak.
By Saturday, he had the perfect launch format: a “Sandlot” themed wiffle ball game in Arizona for MLB and minor leaguers who wanted to spend their night playing on a live stream broadcast by Bauer’s company, Momentum.
In that stream, Bauer included the link to the GoFundMe he created for this cause, with about $22,000 of a $1 million goal raised less than 24 hours after it went live.
Naturally there was plenty of jokes about the Astros.
The Astros banter was constant.
