Tomorrow will be a big day at Isotopes Park as the ‘Topes, in conjunction with Citadel Broadcasting and the American Red Cross, will host a “Haitian Relief Pitch” drive-thru fundraiser tomorrow from Noon to 6:00 PM.
The drive-thru will be set up in Parking Lot C (off of University Blvd.– on the west or third base side of the stadium) and those interested in donating can drive in and make a donation without leaving the warm, cozy comfort of their car. Both cash and checks will be accepted, but if you do donate with a check, please make it out to the American Red Cross. The cool part is that with every donation (whether you give $50 or 50 cents) you get a voucher for a free ticket to an Isotopes game next season as well as some swag from Citadel Broadcasting Company.
While we’d love to see as many people come out to the ballpark as possible, but if you can’t make it, please donate to the Red Cross. If you’ve been following the news coverage from Haiti at all, you know how devastated the country is. Roughly a third of the entire country’s population is still in need of emergency aid and is in desperate need of help.
In baseball news. Ken Gurnick has a terrific story on pitcher Eric Stults on Dodgers.com. It’s strange how quickly he went from bona-fide number five starter in Los Angeles to nearly forgotton Albuquerque Isotope, to the point where he did not get a September call-up and has not been in any of the off-season public discussions about the Dodgers rotation. Here’s hoping he has a great Spring Training and breaks camp in the Los Angeles rotation. You’d be hard pressed to find a nicer guy.
