Day 96: Opening Day Donation


There is nothing that makes me feel like a kid again more than opening day of the baseball season. When I hear the first crack of the bat, I am instantly transported back to my youth and can picture myself on the field playing with my friends. Baseball will always hold tons of memories for me. To me, there is not a sport more connected to youth than baseball. That is why I see such an issue with the decline of baseball leagues and participation within the inner cities of America. Most kids within inner cities quit playing baseball between the ages of 13 to 16 mostly because of a lack of funding, community support and a lack of organization. Luckily, Major League Baseball has created the RBI Program (Reviving Baseball In Inner Cities). Through this program, baseball is looking to fund programs and get baseball alive and kicking again in places that it has been dormant for years. So today, for my random act of kindness, I donated to revive athletic programs and facilities to underserved children through Chicago White Sox charities. Perhaps kids who benefit from this today will help the White Sox win another World Series in my lifetime. I just hope for their sake, they don't end up on the Cubs.

  3. LOL I love your humor. It is sad that baseball was so popular and seems to be dying off with the younger generation. I love a good baseball game, keep on keeping on!
