AT BAT...for ALS. Post-game report:

We've been working hard on ALS through the weekend - raising awareness and money.

The disease has close ties to baseball - it claimed the lives of Lou Gehrig and Catfish Hunter - but it needs far more attention.

The cause is unknown. There's no cure, and there are no survivors. Yes, ALS needs far more attention.

To that end, it was ALS Awareness Night at Friday's game and the chapter had a group outing at the DBAP on Sunday.

Angela Murphy, the chapter's Director of Special Events, receives the game ball at Friday's game.

Also, we helped to promote the chapter's eBay auction with 99.9 The Fan and 620 The Buzz. $7,000 was raised.

If you can invest fifteen minutes, here are a couple of notable stories on this topic from last week:

Now, you understand why we're AT BAT...for ALS.
