Alli--that is so very exciting. I am a huge baseball fan. My brother played ball for USC and I have four (FOUR) boys in baseball--so I am thrilled beyond belief at this amazing assistance. Truly moving-and may I say--you are such a beautiful woman--I am sure your husband must be very handsome indeed.

Take care,

Hi everyone! Hope all your planning is running smoothly. I just wanted to let everyone know what was going on in the baseball world as far as the Walk-A-Thon is concerned. The Tampa Bay Rays said they would help by donating a ticket package and/or autographed item for a raffle or prize and a few players are going to make an appearance. In Toledo, the Mud Hens are thinking about sponsoring; are allowing us to set up a table at a game to promote the walk (and in doing so also raising awareness), are sending their mascot to the walk to accompany a really cute player (my husband) to sign autographs and will hopefully be able to help us promote on their jumbo-tron (I haven't asked about that yet). The Detroit Tigers (the major league team affiliated with the Mud Hens) said they would give us anything we needed (tickets, autographed stuff, etc.)

I have several girlfriends whose husbands play for different teams, so I'll be spreading the word about the walks to the ones who are playing in the cities where the walks will be held. Hopefully they'll be willing to get their hubbies to make an appearance. I'll let the coordinators in those cities know ASAP.

If you have any teams, whether they're minor league or major league, in your area and want to speak with them about sponsorship, first look on their website (they all have one). Some of them require you to put requests in writing. So, you can write your letter and be sure to include that the Rays and Tigers are helping out. If their website does not tell you how to contact them for donations, call their community relations department. If you have any problems or have any questions, please let me know. [:D]

For just a second I thought we were also starting local PF softball teams. Which would totally work for DH and I. :-)

Alli Creek emailed me and said she has connections to minor and major baseball teams who might be willing to help out with the walk-a-thons. If you would like to connect with her, please email me and I will give you her contact info.
