Baseball wears its heart on its jersey sleeve.
Over the weekend, two clubs did their part to help the healing from two recent tragedies -- the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., and the fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas.
Sunday was ''Newtown Day at Yankee Stadium.'' About 4,000 residents of the town took advantage of free tickets and food vouchers for the Yankees-Orioles game. The national anthem was performed by the Newtown Youth Voices.
On Saturday night before their game against the Astros, the Rangers presented officials from West with a $140,000 donation put together by a combination of Major League Baseball, the players association and the Rangers foundation.
The Rangers wore patches for Saturday's game that read, "Support West." Texas first baseman Lance Berkman took that message quite literally: he gave the West fire department a firetruck.

As a Boston Red Sox fan I have to say Manny Ramirez had some very clutch moments in his time in Boston. 2004 was a special year for Red Sox fans and Manny was very instrumental that year to help Boston reverse the curse.
When talk of steroids and PED’s circled around his name the Red Sox front office was looking to part ways with Manny. Ramirez moved to Los Angeles to play with...
I would prefer to forget that four-game set with Baltimore a few years ago right before the All-Star break, but my baseball heart never lets me. I kind of feared history would repeat itself as the Rangers headed east for a series with the Orioles with the mid-summer classic just a week away. Fortunately, Derek Holland and the gang made sure this one wouldn’t be four losses...
