I just wanted to tell the Bleeding Yankee Blue audience about an important cause that Yankee great Jim Leyritz is apart of and I just wanted to spread the word. Jim’s a good dude with a huge heart and this cause is simply terrific.
On March 15th in Mineola, New York at Carlino’s… there is a dinner to promoteThe Greatest Save Charity.
The Greatest Save Charity is a foundation that’s designed to prevent child abductions and sexual exploitation. The goal is to raise money for the cause, as well as recruit sponsors and golfers for the next event…. the Dinner and Charity Golf Outing on May 17th and 18th at the Crest Hollow Country Club.
The Golf event will be held in Bethpage at the Bethpage Golf Course in Long Island. Baseball great Rollie Fingers is the spokesperson for this charity, and there will be other Hall Of Fame players in attendance as well. There will also be former Mets and Yankee players… including the great Jim Leyritz.
According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children says: “Approximately 800,000 children younger than 18 were reported missing. More than 200,000 children were abducted by family members. More than 58,000 children were abducted by non family members. An estimated 115 children were the victims of “stereotypical” kidnapping.”
Now if you have the time and you believe in this cause, check out theinformation HERE. The Greatest Save Facebook page is HERE. Now look, Leyritz is a straight shooter and he’s offering his time because he believes in the cause. If this isn’t the cause for you, that’s fine, no one is forcing you to do anything. We here at Bleeding Yankee Blue just wanted to make you aware.
Jim is a good guy. He had a great baseball career and now he wants to give back. You can’t dismiss that. Check out the info and think about the next step for you.
The Greatest Save is a division of the KinderVision Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, established in 1991 and a recognized charity of Major League Baseball.
