.......Two high school players threw out ceremonial first pitches. The Indians made a $250,000 donation to the strapped Cleveland school system to fund the entire baseball and softball programs.

is there a "bad guy team" in the AL central? seems like a lot of class acts- mainly the sox, of course.

Reinsy may have a bad rep but he has a heart of gold when it comes to charity. Plus he doesn't seek any publicity for himself.

I always feel a bit of pride when I'm at Children's Memorial Hospital and see the White Sox Charities signs. Same thing goes for Cubs Care and all the good they do.

I could be totally wrong but what does KC exactly do besides give the rest of the teams in the AL Central nice W's for the win column.

I like to see things like this. It's good for the game.

Anytime you spread baseball to areas where it is not as common as it should be, you are improving the quality of the game 10-20 years down the line, as some of the local youngsters mature into pros.

Sadly, baseball has been in decline in poor urban areas, and that means a lot of talent being wasted or sent to other, cheaper sports.
