Also, the Red Sox are encouraging fans to make a donation at the gates at Fenway Park prior to the game against the Blue Jays on Sunday to help the victims in Japan.

In conjunction with efforts across Major League Baseball, its 30 clubs and the Major League Baseball Players Association, volunteers from the Red Sox Foundation and the Japanese Association of Greater Boston will collect funds from fans with 100 percent of the donations going to the Japan Committee for UNICEF.

Fans who are unable to attend Sunday’s game but would like to assist in these efforts can make a donation to the Red Sox Foundation, the official team charity of the Boston Red Sox. Fans can log on to to make a tax deductible gift via credit card online or by mail via check/money order. Checks should be made out to “Red Sox Foundation/Japan Relief” and sent to Red Sox Foundation, 4 Yawkey Way, Boston, MA 02215. All funds collected online and donations made after Sunday, April 17 will be dedicated to the Red Cross Society of Japan.
