Backstop for the children of fallen soldiers

I sometimes get frustrated with the catcher on my fantasy baseball team, Jason Varitek, but the guy seems to have his heart in the right place.

On Memorial Day, Varitek wore specially designed camouflage equipment in support of the troops and is auctioning the equipment to raise money for the Massachusetts Soldiers Legacy Fund, which raises funds to allow the children of fallen soldiers from that state to attend college.

There's a fan site for Varitek, called, where you can see some terrific photos. Try this and this for starters.

And be sure to check out the auction site, in case you have a hankering for some slick catching gear and want to help a good cause.
