Here’s to the Heroes
One other plug for today: during the 2011 season, Budweiser will launch its “Here’s to the Heroes” Home Run Program, donating $100 to the military charity Folds of Honor for every home run hit this season.
Last year, 110 home runs were hit at Citi Field and over 4,600 in Major League games. Similar numbers this season would result in a $460,000 donation.
Folds of Honor is a non-profit organization that provides post-secondary educational scholarships for children and spouses of military service men and women killed or disabled.
