Michael Cuddyer and teammates to provide Denver children with an unforgettable day at the ballpark
DENVER -- Prior to this evening's game at Coors Field, Michael Cuddyer and teammates will provide everlasting memories to a group of 50 children from St. Elizabeth's School, as the Major League Baseball Players Trust's "Buses for Baseball" program motors into Denver.
Courtesy of the Players Trust, the children will receive round-trip transportation to the game, meet the players, and receive free tickets, food, beverages and souvenirs.
This season, "Buses for Baseball" will provide transportation and personal greetings for more than 750 underserved children attending Major League Baseball games as invited guests of their big league heroes. "Buses for Baseball" will provide many of the children with their first chance to attend a Major League Baseball game.
The Players Trust enjoys support from the Rockies organization in providing this unique, up-close and personal opportunity to share the thrill of Major League Baseball with those less fortunate.
