Beyond the Diamond

CHRISTOPHER. LOVED. BASEBALL. And, of course, there was no other Major League team for him but the New York Yankees! Upstate New York is Yankee territory, with a significant number of Red Sox fans mixed in to make life interesting. Christopher’s father is a Red Sox fan, which made for some heated discussions around the dinner table.  I can’t help but smile picturing Christopher reading Ryan Maloney’s  attached blog.  Ryan writes “Prose and Ivy” for the Chicago Cubs, a team that would only have been on Christopher’s radar if they were playing the Yankees in the World Series.  But I know that he would be so happy and proud to have his story be part of Ryan’s thoughtful comments!  Baseball fans, no matter their allegiance, are a powerful force — dedicated, passionate, and vocal.   Beyond the diamond, they have the power to champion a cause, to effect change, to make a difference.  At this time of year, our attention is probably more focused on which teams will make it to the playoffs.  That’s a good thing.  But, please also keep in mind Ryan’s  message….baseball is more than just a game.  The 2011 Christopher Donalty CURE Benefit is less than two weeks away.  Christopher wanted to make a difference in the world.  You can help him realize his dream by donating to our cause at .  All proceeds go directly to support Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy’s ( research program.

I also recommend you start to follow Ryan on “Prose and Ivy.”  Great writing!
