CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Cleveland Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer is starting off the season with a huge announcement of giving.

In a video released on Twitter on Wednesday, one day before the Major League Baseball season begins, Bauer unveiled "69 Days of Giving."

The video is pretty hilarious, by the way:

According to Bauer, he is giving away the extra money he made in arbitration, which will add up to more than $100,000.

Here's how it will work, according to his website. For 68 days Bauer will give $420.69 to different charities submitted by fans.

On day 69, he will give $69,420.69 to the charity of his choice.

The website also appears to have a section that will keep track of all charities that have been supported.

So far, the only charity listed is the Lone Survivor Foundation for veterans.
