Don’t forget, the deadline to submit a question for our Q&A with Yogi Berra is today at noon. See this post for more details.


Received an interesting e-mail from Sachin, a blog reader and Yankees fan who works in Cambridge in the heart of Red Sox Nation. He is taking part in his company’s Autism Awareness Week to raise money for the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation, which supports autism research.

The person in Sachin’s company who raises the most money will present a check to the foundation on the mound at Fenway Park in September. Sachin promises that if it’s him, he will wear his Yankees cap.

How great would that be? As Sachin writes, “Obviously the plan to wear my Yankees hat on the mound at Fenway is just a small reason to donate. The important reason is to aid financially disadvantaged families who need assistance in caring and receiving services for their children with autism.”

Go to Sachin’s fund-raising page if you want to contribute. I just kicked in $25.

(Full disclosure: I attended a Flutie Foundation event last winter and autism research is a cause that I support. I would never presume to tell you what to do with your money. But if you want to contribute, it’s a great cause.)
