Well, not me, personally…

But my foundation – The Baseball United Foundation – is teaming up with Chicago White Sox scout John Tumminia and former MLB pitcher Rob Bell, to hold youth baseball clinics in Ireland in January 2014.

In addition to the clinic, we will be shipping hundreds of pounds of baseball equipment to Ireland. I’m hoping it will be the first of many equipment shipments to Ireland, Europe and anywhere else that can use the equipment to give kids the chance to play baseball.

And PLEASE consider making a small donation to this project. Shipping hundreds of pounds of equipment overseas isn’t cheap and we need to raise about $1,200 just to get this stuff into Dublin via ship. You can make your donation here: DONATE TO IRELAND BASEBALL CLINICS

BTW, I’d like to thank everyone that has been talking about this project on the web, Twitter and Facebook, including Baseball Prospectus, ¬†Kevin Kernan and¬†Jack Curry.
