HOUSTON (FOX 26) - Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt wil be throwing out the first pitch tomorrow night before the Houston Astros face the Los Angeles Dodgers at Minute Maid Park in game three of the World Series.
Watt will be throwing out the first pitch, in part, so the Houston Astros can honor him for the tremendous work he's done with Hurricane Harvey relief. Watt raised more than $37 million dollars for recovery efforts.
On Thursday, J.J. Watt announced the charities he would be partnering with to distribute the funds. He's partnering with SBP, for rebuilding homes; Save the Children, for child care centers and after school programs; Feed America, for food distribution; and Americare, for medical services.
He made the announcement in a Facebook video saying, "What we’re gonna do is we’re gonna rebuild homes. We’re gonna restore child care center and after-school programs. We’re gonna provide food for those who need food, and we’re going to provide professional medical services – for both physical and mental health – for those affected by the hurricane.”
