Many of you know I have been working on a project with Ed Randall's Bat for the Cure prostate cancer foundation. Ed is an author and a ESPN Radio host, Sirius Radio host, Major League Baseball comentator and special projects man. Ed is also a prostate cancer survivor like us. His foundation Bat for the Cure is hosting events at Major and Minor league ballparks accross the country promoting prostate cancer awareness.
Ed is a personal friend of mine and this week, with the help of JohnT, a radio and game event was held in Orange County California, and Mr. John was able to work the event with my brother and his wife. John spoke to the many crowd members and also was on the radio for quite some time I understand. I was in Las Vegas doing the same but my event was postponed until August 21 when I will throw out the first pitch for the Toronto Blue Jays triple A affilliate. But first things first...
John, thank you dearly for your time and effort. It was a smash hit! As Ed would say, "you hit it out of the park!".
