A's designate one full playoff share to charity

  •  

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Athletics players have decided to donate one full playoff share to eight local and national charitable efforts, a total of $34,325.16.

Reliever Jerry Blevins, the team's player representative, informed the front office that he and his teammates voted to donate one playoff share to charities - including Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. The other charities are the MLB Players Trust, UMPS CARE, Oakland A's Community Fund, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area, United Way of the Bay Area, Donnie Moore Ministries and the "Strike 3 Foundation."

The AL West champion A's lost in five games of the AL division series to the Detroit Tigers after a sensational final week of the regular season that included a three-game sweep of the Texas Rangers to capture the division crown.
