Back in 2018, Milwaukee Brewers sluggers Ryan Braun, Christian Yelich, and Mike Moustakas, along with Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff, established California Strong, a charity dedicated to raising money for those affected by the California Fires. On Wednesday, the four collaborated and made a video to send a message regarding everyone's safety and what the charity is doing to give back during the widespread coronavirus outbreak.
Braun kicked things off by offerings fans his well wishes and providing a small update on the charity and what it has planned for the near future. Yelich spoke next, giving a small speech on staying safe and solidarity throughout the crisis, a notion which was echoed by Goff and Moustakas.
California Strong's first initiative will be to donate at least 100,000 meals to those impacted by COVID-19. While Braun didn't reveal the organization's next plans, he assured fans that there's more to come.
The message the four are sending is one that the world needs more of right now. While baseball is on the shelf amid the national health crisis, players taking the time to offer words of encouragement and make charitable donations can make a significant difference for fans.
