Help Ed Kranepool

If you haven’t heard already, “original Met” and longtime fan favorite Ed Kranepool needs a kidney transplant, and is planning to auction off his 1969 World Series ring to help pay for his medical expenses. (Today’s MLB players have fantastic post-career medical benefits, but that’s not necessarily the case for those who retired prior to the 1990s; Ed’s last season was 1979.)

To help out, a good friend of mine started a GoFundMe campaign for Ed — all proceeds will go to Ed Kranepool’s medical expenses. If you’d like to donate, you can do so by going to the Ed Kranepool Needs Kidney GoFundMe page. Please pass along this link to fans of “Steady Eddie.”
