Diamonds & Dreams: Baltimore edition
Jake Arrieta will take the mound tonight as the Orioles go for a series win against the Kansas City Royals. Those of you who follow me on Twitter know normally I’m a pretty frequent in-game updater and hopefully today I can use all that Twitter activity for a good cause by “playing catch” online.
It’s an idea from the Diamonds & Dreams program, which is sponsored by Chevrolet and MLB. While many have the privilege of watching and playing baseball on well-equipped fields, there are many children across America that never get that opportunity. Diamonds & Dreams provides prizes, which include field makeovers, clinics and equipment packages for youth baseball communities across America.
Anyone can enter for a chance to win the prizes as well as a trip for four to the MLB All-Star Game or a new Chevrolet. You can find out more and even play a mini baseball game here: http://on.fb.me/g2H59j

If you’re on Twitter today or tonight, you can help by either retweeting my #playcatch tweet, or by starting a game on your own that includes the #playcatch hashtag and a link to the Diamonds & Dreams Facebook tab:
Every unique “thrower” or retweet today earns a real baseball for the Greater Baltimore Boys and Girls Club. It’s pretty simple and costs you nothing to help, just a click of the mouse. Hopefully, we can hit the top contribution today!
