The Greater Lawrence Baseball Umpires Association will be participating in a group Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS on Saturday, September 6, 2014
at 12 Noon on the Varsity baseball field at North Andover High School.
Umpires should dress in Navy shirt with Grey pants (no hat please).
We will meet at 11:30am on the field to coordinate the procedure that will be used for the bucket dump.
I am inviting area baseball coaches and players in uniform from various leagues to help us out by dumping the ice buckets on each participating umpire. Should make for a great video!
We will then send out a challenge to each of the remaining Boards in Massachusetts. All you need to bring is a bucket and ice! We will supply the water and a willing player/coach to pour it on you.
We, as a group, have been a long time champion in supporting the fight against ALS, and this is just another way to show how special this organization is in coming together for a good cause.
Please make an effort to join your fellow men/women in Blue.
I will be requesting a $5.00 donation from the coaches who participate for the Privilege/Pleasure of soaking their favorite or not so favorite umpire. I will sponsor the first 10 players with a $50.00 donation and you may join me with one or more $5.00 sponsorships if you so desire.
RSVP by e-mail to Tom Torrisi at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible so that we can get an accurate count on how many players/coaches will be needed.
