Twitter Winner!

My dad answered a trivia question that the York Revolution had on their twitter account and we won this Mike Bordick autographed card. It's a pretty cool addition to our collection. The Revoltion have had close ties to the Orioles and both managers they've had in their history are former O's.

Today's Autographs: 1
2012 autographs: 37
2012 $ raised for Alopecia Areata: $2.22

The Mayor Ross Peeples

Someone asked me what is the most cards we have signed by one person? We counted and it is Ross Peeples. Ross is an original member of the Lancaster Barnstormers so he has been with the team since 2005 and earned the nickname "The Mayor". With all the games we go to and Ross being around for 7 years it makes that one kind of easy...we have 39 cards signed by him (and that doesn't count all the balls, programs, and everything else!). Ross has always been awesome to us and signed whatever we wanted. He is a great pitcher but even better person. Can't wait to see him pitch in 2012! Thanks Ross! If you need any Ross cards, just let me know and I could send you one.

Quack, Quack!

Last week I received a letter in the mail from a special family in Long Island. We've never met them but they found out about our cause. Kyle is 7 years old and a big fan of the Long Island Ducks. He wrote me a letter and included 4 autographed pocket schedules and a $1 donation. It was so nice of him to support what we are doing and we are looking forward to connecting with them at a ball game this summer! Thanks Kyle!
