I wrote yesterday about MLB distributing $65 million in postseason shares to teams that participated in the playoffs and the A’s decided to do something very nice with part of their $2.1 million allotment.

Each “full share” for an A’s player equaled $34,325 and at the urging of Jonny Gomes--who has since signed with the Red Sox--they decided to donate one full share to charity.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle has the details:

#Athletics’ postseason share for charity goes to: Players Trust ($10K), Sandy Relief ($5K) Strike 3 Fnd. ($5K), A’s Community Fund ($4K)...
