“Baseball As Good Medicine: The Amazing, Magical, Healing Qualities of Baseball – a unique variety of storytellers from sportswriters to rheumatologists to artists to umpires – each telling a story related to this theme in 5 minutes or less! An action packed fun evening of baseball, stories and judges all to benefit a cause.
All proceeds from the event go to Made Visible Foundation. Our work puts cameras and other tools in the hands of young people with medical challenges/life threatening illnesses to enable them to create media projects to tell their stories and transform their experiences.
Hence the theme – “Baseball As Good Medicine”!
