The point of the gala isn't just for people to get together and have a good time, however. BA uses the gala to raise money for youth baseball programs, and this year the featured programs came from the Brooklyn Cyclones and Chicago White Sox.

Cyclones general manager Steve Cohen explained his club's program to provide equipment to youth teams in Brooklyn, and Dennis Gilbert, a special assistant to chairman Jerry Reinsdorf, talked about the White Sox' $1 million contribution to build a four-field complex in Chicago, including a Miracle Field for children with special needs.

Nice to see some positive ink.

I can't believe JR is spending $1 mill to let some kids play. Doesn't he know this team needs pitching and a second baseman? How many games are those kids going to win for the Sox in 2005?
