    Wiffle ball for Charity!

    Copy of wiffleballIf you’re in the Boston Area, love wiffle ball, and enjoy helping with great causes, then do I have an event for you!

    On September 27th at Moakley Field in Boston, teams of all ages and sizes will be playing in the 1st annual Young Professionals Accelerating the Cure’s 1st Annual Charity Wiffle Ball Tournament.

    Each whiffle ball team, consisting of 3-5 players, will play 3 other teams in a Round Robin Tournament. The winners of the Round Robins will then face each other in a Single Elimination Challenge. The overall winning team wins a collection of gift certificates to local area restaurants.

    Registration is $100 per team of 3-5 players, and feel free to find local business, individuals, and organizations to sponsor you!

    If you don’t want to play, there are numerous sponsorship levels where you can help.

    Wondering how the heck teams of 3 to 5 can actually play a wiffle ball game? Well, here are the rules, taken from the Home Run League of Massachusetts:

    • No base running.
    • Imaginary runners on bases advance as they would if there were a base runner.
    • Each game is 5 innings long.
    • A strike out is 3 strikes.
    • A walk is 5 balls.
    • Any ball reaching the singles line (pitcher) is a single.
    • Any ball reaching the doubles line is a double.
    • Any ball that touches the fence is a triple.
    • Any ball landing over the fence or hitting a foul pole above the fence is a home run.

    For more information, or to register, check out The Accelerated Cure Project’s website.

    All money rose from sponsorships and ticket sales will go to for Multiple Sclerosis and be used to fund repositories where blood samples are collected for MS research.

    The Accelerated Cure Project for Multiple Sclerosis is a national non-profit organization dedicated to curing Multiple Sclerosis (MS) by determining the cause of the disease.

    Believing the route to finding the cure will most quickly come from determining the cause or causes of MS, The Accelerated Cure Project is working to develop a logical, organized, straight-forward process based on what is known about the causes of disease in general, This process must be clearly spelled out and presented in a manner that is accessible to those involved: researchers, clinicians, and individuals with MS. The plan that is emerging from this process the “Cure Map.”
