24 Hours of Baseball
The Brooklyn Cyclones are running a charity event called “24 Hours of Baseball“, beginning at noon on Friday, June 6th.
13 staff members of the Cyclones will play baseball — yes, hardball, not softball — for 24 hours straight, in an effort to raise funds for Autism Speaks, HeartShare, and the NYPLCF, which will allocate the funds to needy recipients throughout the Brooklyn community.
Yours truly will be playing in the kickoff game at noon for a team made up of NY-area journalists called “The Scribes”, which is being partially sponsored by the good folks at Mattingly Sports (don’t tell Donnie I’m a Mets fan). Wait till the professional writers find out I’m a lowly blogger! Hopefully Buzz Bissinger isn’t on the team.
If by chance you are in the Brooklyn area, come on down and watch, it should be fun. If you can’t come by but would like to make a donation, you can do so here. ALL monies go directly to the aforementioned charities.
