It turns out, however, that it was much more than that. I later found out that if the rare feat of hitting that target is accomplished during a game, a fan gets $10,000. However, because it occurred during batting practice, Overstock.com decided to donate the same amount to the Wounded Warriors Project in Donaldson's name. That definitely provides a good reason for Donaldson’s celebration! Evidently through these actions, it’s clear that it is not only the Athletics’ third baseman that hit the bullseye!
While Donaldson has been playing well, hitting eight home runs thus far in 2013, I’m sure he will always remember his home run into that small target and his backwards celebration.
