Snagging baseballs for charity
You know how some people run marathons for charity and get their friends to pledge money for every mile? Well, that’s sort of what I’m going to be doing in 2009–except my marathon will be the entire Major League Baseball season, and I’ll be snagging balls instead of running miles. (Cool, huh?) I’ve hooked up with a charity called Pitch In For Baseball that collects new and “gently used” baseball equipment and re-distributes it to needy kids around the world. It’s a great cause, it’s very easy to make a pledge, and I’m more excited about baseball than ever.
