PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - Philadelphia Phillies manager Gabe Kapler is among the many who have lost their homes to the wildfires that have ravaged California.
Kapler moved to Philadelphia last winter when the Phillies hired him, but he kept his Malibu home about a mile from the Pacific Ocean, according to the organization.
His two sons and ex-wife lived there. They are safe, but Kapler learned over the weekend that the home had been destroyed.
"We're good," he told The Athletic. "Our family is good. There are a lot of other families who are not."
Many have lost everything in these fires, and even basic needs are going to be hard to meet. https://t.co/6wbdbClneI— gabe kapler (@gabekapler) November 11, 2018
Kepler retweeted ESPN anchor Michelle Beadle, who posted a list of items hoping to be donated to those affected by the Woolsey fire.
At least 44 people have been confirmed dead in the wildfires coming from both ends of the state as of Tuesday morning.
