LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer donated $51,000 to Think Together, a program that offers after-school STEM and robotics programs for middle school students in southeast Los Angeles, as he wrapped up the first month of his “Ks for a Cause” initiative.

Trevor Bauer #27 of the Los Angeles Dodgers pitches to the San Diego Padres during the first inning at Dodger Stadium on April 24, 2021 in Los Angeles, California.

Bauer’s initiative began at the beginning of the season when the pitcher vowed to donate $1,000 per strikeout to a different charity each month.

In the month of April, Bauer struck out 51 batters which equaled $51,000 in donations.

In May, strikeouts by Bauer will benefit the “Just Keep Living Foundation,” founded by actor Matthew McConaughey and his wife Camila Alves in 2008.

Bauer is scheduled to start the second game of Tuesday’s Dodger doubleheader against the Cubs at Wrigley Field.
