A cause and a blogger worth supporting

Many of us who write about baseball are aware of and appreciate Michael Clair and his blog, "Old Time Family Baseball." It is one of the quirkiest, different sites in the baseball realm. But Michael also has a view beyond the baseball diamond and to the world at large.

For the second straight year, Michael is running a "blogathon" to help raise money for Doctors Without Borders, a wonderful organization that helps people around the world. Last year, Michael raised $2,000 and this year he is shooting for $3,000. 

Not only does Michael runs posts every half hour over a 24 hour period, but he also has solicited the help of bloggers from around the country to "donate" posts for the cause. I was privileged to participate and I'm sure my contribution will appear sometime during the day tomorrow.

Do your old Fan a favor and check it out and donate to a worthy cause. It is easy to do and you do not have to donate great sums of money. Any sum will help. Of course, if you want to donate a lot, I'm sure he wouldn't mind. So check it out and help Michael if you can.  Thanks!
