Wang does his part to help Taiwan

Tweet [1]

Chien-Ming Wang, as you know, is out for the season after having shoulder surgery. But he’s not standing on the sidelines.

In the wake of last weekend’s typhoon that hit southern Taiwan, Wang has donated $85,000 to the Red Cross. He also organized an auction of autographed items from Taiwanese players in the United States that helped raise an additional $1.3 million.

This blog has a lot of readers in Taiwan and I’ve been fortunate to meet a lot of nice people from there. Here’s hoping that they and their families are doing OK after the storm.
