Sox catcher Jayson Hernandez, who played with Salem & Portland this year in an injury-riddled season, posted this on Twitter.

I've emailed him for more info on how to donate and will update the thread when I receive it, but I thought this was main board worthy given the urgency of the situation. Kudos to Jayson for undertaking this effort.

From Jayson:

"Thanks for reaching out! Within the next day or so I will be creating a website for people to donate and take a look at our cause. When this is completed it would be great if you could spread it any way you can. Thank you very much again for the support!"

This is awesome. No idea what kind of prospect he is. If he's marginal, this will surely get him remembered when it's time for him to be released, and I bet a team will give him a coaching or instructor position just to have a guy who "gets it" on the team.

Very admirable and very much needed. I just returned from a trip up to the Jersey Shore where I have a number of family and friends. The devastation is beyond belief.

Pat Light, Red Sox 2012 supplemental first round pick out of Monmouth University, is also contributing for re-tweets. Really happy to see players early in their pro careers getting involved.
