    Posted by Christine E. at 10:08 am in Baseball,Good Deeds No Comments

    In less than 24 hours, at 9:00am tomorrow, Saturday, October 20th,  Adams Field in Quincy MA, will once again host The 100 Innings of Baseball Spectacular, with the contest continuing until every last inning is played…which is usually about 33 hours later…

    In its 9th year, The 100 Innings of Baseball Spectacular began in 2004 as a fundraiser for Curt’s Pitch for ALS program to aid the fight against Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, better known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, and to date, has raised over $503,000 to help battle the disease.

    This years proceeds  support ALS  throught The Angel Fund,  a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting ALS investigations at the Cecil B. Day Laboratory for Neuromuscular Research.

    Sign up to play now! Walter Bentson, Chief Umpire, continues his own mission to fight ALS, and invites you to play 1 inning, a 100, or any number in between.  Registration is open to players 18 to 100, and is $40 per person, which will allow you to play 3 hours of the contest.  If you would like to play more than 3, you are asked to fund raise or donate $10.00 for each additional hour.  You can get more info, or sign up here...

    Can’t make the game, but still want to help out? You can donate on-line to this great cause…
