Running a 26.2-mile Marathon to Beat Cancer

Running a 26.2-mile Marathon to Beat Cancer

Do you know someone who has been diagnosed with cancer? Know someone who has passed away from cancer? Have you been affected by cancer in some way in your life?  Most people would respond, "yes" to one of these questions.  Every four minutes, someone new is diagnosed with blood cancer.  Every ten minutes, someone dies.  Leukemia causes more deaths than any other cancer among children under the age of 20.  These facts are shocking, saddening and in need of a cure.  I intend to do anything I can to help, but need your assistance.

One Pitch, Dozens of Baskets & So Much Fun

One Pitch, Dozens of Baskets & So Much Fun

Did the title get your attention?  That's because the 4th Annual Crusade Against Impaired Driving Softball Tournament and Fundraiser is a very unique event! 

It's a one-pitch coed softball tournament that is taking place once again at Sunshine Park on Saturday, August 13 from 9am-4pm.  A one pitch tournament means all the batters have one pitch to swing at.  If they don't hit the ball, they're out.  Not only is it challenging, but it's lots of fun.  The games are only about an hour long, and we have many teams that return year after year because it's such a fun event.

Bisons' Coca-Cola Field Named 'Coolest Minor League Ballpark in America'

Complex Magazine named Coca-Cola Field, the home of the Buffalo Bisons, as the “Coolest Minor League Ballpark in America” in an online article ranking the top minor league facilities.

In a piece written by Jack Erwin, Complex Magazine credits Coca-Cola Field as having “the distinction of being the precursor to today's wave of retro-modern ballparks.” He calls the Bisons’ home; ”the coolest minor league park in the land (and cooler than a lot of major league parks, we gotta say).”
