MLBPA Press Release
MILWAUKEE -- Prior to tonight’s Brewers game, 50 children from Milwaukee’s Holton Youth Center will receive a memorable behind-the-scenes peak into the life of a Major Leaguer, when they visit Miller Park as the personal guests of Dave Bush, Chris Capuano, Craig Counsell, Prince Fielder, J.J. Hardy and Geoff Jenkins. The players have extended this invitation as part of the Major League Baseball Players Trust’s “Buses for Baseball” program.
Courtesy of the players’ charitable foundation, “Buses for Baseball” provides more than 1,500 underprivileged children each year with tickets, transportation, food, souvenirs and personal welcomes from the players at Major League Baseball games. Administered by the Players Trust, and underwritten by Majestic Athletic, a division of VF Imagewear, Inc., “Buses for Baseball” provides many children with their first chance to attend a Major League Baseball game.
The Players Trust enjoys support from the Milwaukee Brewers organization in providing this unique, up close and personal opportunity to share the thrill of Major League Baseball with those less fortunate.
