MILWAUKEE, Wisc. - Do you know Matt Kemp?
You will now.
He plays center field for the Los Angeles Dodgers and he's from Oklahoma.
And he's got a big heart.
Kemp announced on Twitter Monday night that he would donate $1,000 for every homerun he hits between now and the All Star break.
Kemp tweeted - I'm giving $1000 for tonight's HR and every HR until the All-Star break for the victims of my hometown in OKC. #PrayforOklahoma
He only has two homers on the season, but he hit one out in the Dodgers 3-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers to begin his pledge.
