Spotlight on Philanthropy

Trevor Bauer is an outstanding starting pitcher. In 2017 he went 17-9 with a 4.19 era starting in 31 games for the Cleveland Indians. That set the stage for Trevor to ask for a reported $6.9 million dollar salary. When he was told that he may be asking for too much, he lowered this amount to exactly $6,420,969.69 for the 2018 season. He was later asked  to propose a deal for $6,525,000. Which he won through arbitration. Wanting to be paid exactly what he asked for, Trevor started his 69 Days Of Giving campaign.

This charitable campaign saw Trevor Bauer donating $420.69 to a different charity suggested by the public each day for 68 days. On day 69 he donated $69,420.69 to Max Hayes a High School in Cleveland. After paying his campaign manager $6,002.70, Trevor was left with the salary he was looking for. While it may seem like Trevor was mocking the system, his charity shouldn't be overlooked.
