7/31/07 "My Brush with Brewer Greatness!!"
Today was a home run day for me. I was thrilled to have the chance to go to Miller Park and meet Brewers Star Bill Hall. We were shooting promos for the upcoming Susan Komen "Race for the Cure." It takes place September 23rd. The center fielder is more than just a talented player. Hall is good looking, articulate, and you know if he ever needs a career outside of baseball..he will do just fine. He's also a great role model for young men, particularly African American.
In May of 2006, when the Brewers faced the Mets, Hall hit the tenth inning home run with a pink bat. The pink bats were to raise awareness of breast cancer. That home run won the game. The special bat was presented to Halls mom who was at the game for that crowd thrilling victory.
Bill Hall was touched by the tremendous reaction he got from all over the country. He tells me he knew then, he had to get even more involved with the fight against breast cancer.
It is only fitting that Hall is an honorary chairperson of this year's "Komen Race for the Cure." I am thrilled to be an honorary chairperson again this year. By joining the Komen team, Hall help score points in a different arena. We are lucky that Bill Hall is on our team.
God Bless You for helping us save lives.
