Ryu to raise funds for ferry tragedy in South Korea

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu, continuing his charitable efforts in the wake of a disaster in his homeland, will make a special appearance Sunday at the team's Viva Los Dodgers fan event before the game against the D-backs at Dodger Stadium.

Ryu, from South Korea, will sign autographs for fans from 11:45 a.m.-12:15 p.m. PT in parking Lot 6 for monetary donations to benefit the survivors and the families of those who lost their lives aboard the South Korean ferry Sewol. The ferry capsized April 16.

On Friday, Ryu donated $100,000 via his HJ 99 foundation to a charity to help those affected by the disaster. He will sign autographs in the tent located near the Viva Los Dodgers stage.
