Sports Illustrated – Detroit Tigers LHP Matthew Boyd takes on mission to end sex slavery in Uganda

Detroit Tigers pitcher Matthew Boyd is on a mission to end sex slavery.

According to a report by the Detroit Free Press on Saturday, Boyd has "essentially adopted" 36 girls in Uganda in an attempt to protect them from the sex slave industry. He and his wife, Ashley, provide the girls with food, clothing and rent for their homes.

The Boyds have also created their own nonprofit, Kingdom Home, and are raising money to buy land to expand in Uganda. The couple hopes to build four new homes on that land over the next three years to protect more girls from sex slavery.
