MLB player Tejada helps in Haiti

This is how I'm going to remember Miguel Tejada after he retires from baseball.


Not as a guy flagged for using performance-enhancing drugs. Not as a guy who lied about it to Congress.


He can't take those things back. They're on the record.


Instead, I choose to remember first what Tejada is doing right now in Haiti.


A native of the Dominican Republic, Tejada arrived in Haiti on Sunday, intent on doing whatever possible to help people he calls "brothers."


Tejada told MSNBC he was bringing water, food and — most of all — himself in response to an earthquake that's killing an untold amount and has plunged an entire country into chaos.


"I was in the States when it happened," Tejada said. "They came to my heart and I'm really sorry for what has happened. That's why I came here, to bring some support for the people here."


Spanish-speaking Dominican Republic and French-speaking Haiti share a border on the island of Hispaniola. The countries have different cultures, histories and economies, but the differences don't stop Tejada from helping.
