Wow, I got lots of mail today. Tons of packages from more minor league baseball teams. Since my brother Gavin is helping me get the autographs too, he is getting to help me open the mail. Thanks to the following teams who have helped with tickets and cards to get signed. This should be a fun summer! You can click on the team logo and go to their website.

To get ready for the season, I sent a letter to the teams in Minor League Baseball telling them about my project. Saturday was a GREAT day in my mailbox as I heard from 5 teams already. I wanted to send a special "Thanks" to the following teams for sending me card sets that I can work on getting signed this year. Also I got a few ticket vouchers to use too. Awesome day, thanks!

I love this time of year...not only because it's my birthday, but it's baseball season! My name is Blake and I'm a big sports fan. My favorite sport is baseball, but I also love basketball and football. At the age of 1 I was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata and have been bald pretty much my whole life. It is an auto immune disease that attacks your hair follicles. I tell my friends that my body is allergic to my hair. I see kids that raise money for their charities and wondered what I could do. My brother Gavin and I love to get autographs on cards and other stuff. We have over 1,000 autographed sports cards that we've collected over the last several years. This season I will be donating $.05 for every card or memorabilia I get signed to the National Alopecia Areata Foundation. That may not sound like a lot to you, but I am only 10 years old. Also, my parents will be doubling my donation so I hope to raise a lot of money. See you at the ballpark!
Here you will be able to follow my season, check out my autographs, and hopefully learn something about Alopecia Areata. I'm also looking forward to taking my new baby brother Kyle to his first game this season! Feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
