Tis the season for giving. Two Cleveland Indians, one past and one current, showed what it means to give and have set a shining example for everyone to follow. Or rather, to follow to the best of our abilities. In today’s edition of Clevelinks, we lead things off with Justin Masterson and Jim Thome helping those less fortunate this holiday season.

  • Justin Masterson traveled to Africa to help the charitable organization “Feed Their Future.” Masterson helped the group raise over $200,000 to help feed starving children in Africa. This surpassed the original goal of $140,000. (refresh if video player fails to load)

  • Jim Thome, born and raised in Peoria, Illinois, recently donated $100,000 to help those who were affected by the tornadoes that recently devastated Washington, Illinois.
  • In baseball related news, Paul Hoynes was asked in his most recent edition of “Hey, Hoynsie!” if he thinks the Indians will sign a #1 or #2 starters. Per Hoynsie, unless it’s via trade, the answer is probably no.
