Players & Earnings
|For the second straight year, the Boston Men's Baseball League teamed up with Curt Schilling and The ALS Association, Massachusetts Chapter to hold a 100 inning baseball game. 175 players ultimately suited up and played in the marathon game to raise money for Lou Gehrig's disease at Campanelli Stadium in Brockton, MA -- home of the Brockton Rox professional baseball club. In fact, 21 players played all 100 innings! The game began Saturday 4/16 at 9:00AM and concluded Sunday 4/17 at 4:30PM -- 31.5 straight hours, nonstop through the night. |
So far $108,873 has been donated in 2005, bringing the two-year total raised from the 100 Innings of Baseball Spectacular to $220,822. Ballplayers were primarily from the BMBL, but also came from Maryland, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Maine and even Canada to play.
Here's what Curt Schilling had to say:
In just two years time, this event is responsible for raising over $200,000 that will go directly toward helping patients and families that are battling with ALS. It is through the generosity, hard work, and creativity of people like yourselves that we are able to slowly and surely get closer to the light at the end of the tunnel and ultimately eliminate this horrible disease. We wish you all good luck with your upcoming season and thank you again from the bottom of our heart."
