Dempster, Robertson join forces for charity

Red Sox starter Ryan Dempster and Yankees reliever David Robertson — two really good guys — are working together on a charity project.

Through Power of 2, they are raising money for their respective charities in a friendly competition.

Fans are encouraged to donate to David and Ryan’s charities as many times as they would like to until Monday August 26. The pitcher that receives the most donations will be crowned champion of the Power of 2. The loser will have attend a press conference at Yankee Stadium in September dressed as a super hero.

Fans can win two tickets to a game and field passes to meet Ryan or David.


Ryan’s foundation improves the quality of life for those affected by 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome.

David and his High Socks For Hope foundation lends support to charities and organizations helping those affected by tragedies. It was formed to help people left homeless by the tornadoes in Tuscaloosa, Ala., in 2011 and has since undertaken a variety of worthwhile projects.
