His Hollywood story continues.
Both Daisuke Matsuzaka and Hideki Okajima have made a video in English to ask the Red Sox fans to help Japan in their time of dire need. You can click here to watch it and make a donation. (With thanks to my friend Jere for the link.)
You can also donate to the Red Cross via your cell phone (like I did) by texting REDCROSS at 90999.
