It's still too early to tell just how much damage was done by the massive tornado that hit the Oklahoma City area Monday, but it's clear the rebuilding costs are going to be astronomical. The Dodgers' Matt Kemp is from the OKC suburb of Midwest City, just a few miles from the city of Moore, the suburb devastated by the tornado. After homering in LA's win over Milwaukee last night, Kemp tweeted that he was donating $1000 to victims of the tornado for that homer and every one he hits until the All-Star break. Kemp has been mired in a season-long power slump at the plate following offseason shoulder surgery. He didn't hit his first home run of the season until the 20th game of the season, and his blast off Yovani Gallardo last night snapped a 97-plate appearance homerless streak. The Dodgers as a whole have struggled to hit for much power this season -- Carl Crawford leads the team with 5 home runs, with two coming in the same game almost a month ago. However many home runs Kemp ends up hitting between now and July, it's still a generous gesture -- something that's not unusual for him. Kemp is not the only Oklahoman in baseball looking to raise money, either -- Arizona prospect Archie Bradley tweeted he will be auctioning off game-used items on eBay. [follow]
