I'd like to add to this.
Many of you know I have been working in advocacy groups and events. One such event was the Baseball Winter Meetings here in Las Vegas. I have been fortunate to work with ZERO ~ The Procject to end Postate Cancer and also Ed Randall's Bat for the Cure. Both organizations teamed up for the baseball event and we were able to test 105 former players, managers, staff of several teams both major and minor league. Coming to a baseball park near you this year, there will be free testing provided by Ed and ZERO. Our target dates are for Fathers Day, but it will vary. I am awaiting the phone numbers for many baseball executives, so that I can do my part to help Ed, a NY broadcaster and now dear friend. So when you see these events...LOL, I helped get it there, and more importantly, take a frind or family member to the ball park for a hot dog, a beer, some baseball, and a PSA test.
