SAVING SECOND BASE OR DON’T LET CANCER STEAL SECOND BASE

DON’T LET CANCER STEAL SECOND BASE

One subject that all men, women, and children of all races, religions, and ethnicities can agree upon is that female breast cancer is bad. Losing a woman’s breast is a tragedy for everyone. It’s the one disease that most men feel just as badly about as the woman who suffers from it. (In fact, most men would happily give up one of their testicles if it meant a woman could keep both of her breasts. It doesn’t even have to be a woman the man knows.)

Various sports including baseball and football have national awareness days (usually Mother’s Day) where money is given to fight breast cancer. But I think baseball should run a promotion year round. Every time a catcher throws a runner out who is attempting to steal second base, Major League Baseball (MLB) should donate $10,000 to fight breast cancer.

T-shirts could also be sold with the caption: Don’t Let Cancer Steal Second Base. The t-shirt could show a catcher who has thrown the ball to second base as a player with a uniform with the team name of, “Cancer” on the back of the jersey is sliding into second base as a second baseman is getting ready to tag “Cancer” out.  With an umpire watching on.
