MLB (Community) MVPs

“A volunteer is a person who can see what others cannot see; who can feel what most do not feel. Often, such gifted persons do not think of themselves as volunteers, but as citizens–citizens in the fullest sense: partners in civilization.” -President George H.W. Bush

I don’t know why I seem to be on a Cardinals theme lately, but this week’s quote of the week relates to something that caught my attention during the MLB All-Star Game last Tuesday (Woo hoo the National League won!!!): People’s All-Stars Among Us…check these phenomenal people out!

I guess my love for the Cardinals is more than just hometown pride in a sports team. I also respect what the club in general does to give back to the community. Manager Tony LaRussa is known for his efforts in animal welfare, with his Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF). Baseball-god Albert Pujols does great work with the Pujols Family Foundation and recently sponsored a fun night for children with Down Syndrome (learn more here). And in honor of Stan the Man Musial and in order to support local children, the Cards are hosting a 6k run in August. Click the photo below for more information.


Ahhh, gotta love good ol’ American baseball and its constant support of local communities. Take that soccer. ;-)
