SEATTLE -— Prior to today’s game, Mariners players Eddie Guardado, Shigetoshi Hasegawa, Gil Meche, Richie Sexson and Scott Spiezio will help create everlasting memories for several local children when the Major League Baseball Players Trust’s “Buses for Baseball” program motors in to Seattle.
Courtesy of the players’ charitable foundation, children from Listen & Talk will receive round-trip transportation to the game, meet the players, and receive free tickets, food, beverages and souvenirs.
“Buses for Baseball,” a program administered by the Players Trust and underwritten by Microsoft Xbox, provides transportation and personal greetings for underprivileged children attending Major League Baseball games as invited guests of their big league heroes.
The Players Trust enjoys support from the Mariners organization in providing this unique, up close and personal opportunity to share the thrill of Major League Baseball with children from the Seattle area. “Buses for Baseball” provides many children with their first chance to attend a Major League Baseball game.
The Major League Baseball Players Trust is a charitable foundation created by the players to help those in need. Through the Players Trust, Major League players contribute their time, money and celebrity to call attention to important issues affecting those in need and to help encourage others to get involved in their own communities.
