High Hopes For New York Yankees, David Robertson

Not long after the April 27th tornado changed the landscape of Tuscaloosa forever, David Robertson went to work raising money and awareness for his hometown.

It was his wife who broke the news at their New York home late in the evening after she received a text message. His home and others close to him had escaped the tornado’s wrath but that didn’t deter him or his Yankee team mates from donating $500,000 to relief efforts.

After his first visit home, one month after the storms, he along with his wife Erin created High Socks For Hope which has grown to include other victims of natural disasters, included those recently affected by the Oklahoma tornado.

What better way to demonstrate our appreciation than by making sure he knows Alabama supports his dream of playing in the 2013 All-Star Game? David remains in 3rd place and sadly he isn’t even carrying the state he’s given so much to in her time of need. We can do better than that because we ARE better than that.

Maybe David will win a coveted spot on the All-Star team. Perhaps he won’t. But most importantly, let him see it wasn’t because he lacked the support of his hometown.
