Trevor Bauer Finishes First Month in LA With a Massive Total in Charity Donations

Bauer donates a large sum based on his strikeout totals from the month of April.



Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer struck out 6 more batters on Thursday night in Milwaukee. That brought his grand total to 51 punchouts for the month of April. And that number is more significant than just for winning ballgames.  

Before the Dodgers season started, Bauerr announced his plan to donate $1,000 to local non-profits for every strikeout he earned in 2021. Those organizations are all focused on STEM and youth programming. The organization that benefitted from his great month of April is Think Together, a place that delivers learning programs, afterschool programs, student support services, and school improvement. 

Bauer will be donating a total of $51,000 to Think Together for April. That comes after a very good first month playing with the Dodgers where he earned 3 wins. Money well spent by the front office, especially as he partners with the LADF.

Bauer’s efforts for the year is called K’s For a Cause. He launched it in hopes of giving back to his hometown community being from Santa Clarita and playing college ball at UCLA. The Dodgers pitcher will feature a different non-profit for the month of May. 

The Dodgers will play 3 more games against the Brewers this weekend before heading to Chicago. That is where Bauer will get his first start for the month of May against the Cubs. After that, his next scheduled start should be back in Los Angeles. 

Bauer tossed 8 innings against the Brewers on Thursday and allowed 2 runs on just 4 hits. The runs came on a homerun from Travis Shaw. The Dodgers could not provide him any run support though, as they dropped the first game of the series by a score of 2-1.

  1. You can say what you will about the noise that surrounds Bauer but his charitable work and his on the field efforts say more about his character than the noise. Last nite he took one for the team and probably earned a lot of respect in the clubhouse & front office.

  2. It’s easy for Sticky Fingers Bauer to be classy with stolen money.The D’s are playing like crap knowing that they have a cheater on their team.
