April Update: PIFB Charity Work
Hey, everyone! I’ve got a bit of down time before I attend tonight’s Minor League Baseball game at Miller Park, so I figured I’d post an update on our efforts with Pitch In For Baseball.
Together, 12 donors (that number is slowly but surely growing) and I have teamed up to raise money on a per-baseball-caught basis this season. Currently, each baseball I take in at a Major League Baseball game is worth $1.23 towards Pitch In For Baseball, and each game home run I bring home is worth an additional $10.23 each!
As everything sits right now, on April 27, 2012, I’ve ballhawked 29 regular season baseballs at Miller Park.
$35.67 on volume of baseballs
+$10.23 for 1 game home run so far
$45.90 raised for PIFB so far this season!
It breaks down to either 1 fielder’s glove and 1 catcher’s mitt, or 3 fielder’s gloves, or half way to gloving an entire infield! Let’s keep doing great things together this season, and help the kids of PIFB!
And finally, here’s a picture of myself and Jose Altuve’s 3rd career home run, brought home on 4/25/12:
