Say what you will about everything having corporate sponsorship these days, but not only did Yoenis Cespedes win the Gillette Home Run Derby at the All Star break, but he, Josh Donaldson, and the other participants raised $465,000 for charities in Minneapolis, including the local Boys and Girls Clubs. Pretty cool stuff. Though I bet Gillette is glad Sean Doolittle wasn't part of the derby...with his fearsome beard, it would have taken at least two cans of shaving cream to even notice.
