I am proud to announce the launch of our 5th Annual Ed Randall's Bat for the Cure Prostate Cancer Awareness and Education Road Trip Across Minor League Baseball with our new national sponsor, Walgreens, serving as propellant.
I am prouder still to tell you of our designation as an Official Charitable Partner of Minor League Baseball, which further validates our life-saving mission.
Never in the history of minor league baseball has there been a healthcare initiative of this magnitude.
that has served its unserved constituency from coast-to-coast.
Last season, 137 ballclubs graciously opened their homes to us and we have every expectation we will exceed that total this year.
We are especially gratified to be working with the Camden Riversharks of the Atlantic League. They will welcome the charity on June 24th and have pledged to make a financial contribution that will allow us to further our mission of spreading our twin gospels of prostate cancer awareness and education.
On Father's Day, the Spokane Indians of the Northwest League will don baby blue uniform tops as a show of support. The uniforms will be raffled off and proceeds donated to this charity.
I have a special place in my heart for Spokane as I was their play-by-play announcer on KHQ-Radio
in the same ballpark (with the same phone number) in 1975.
We thank them and all the clubs for their constant kindness and support and wish them all a great season.
