C.J. Wilson’s Annual Bats & Brushes Charity Event

Updated: August 7, 2015

Hanging with some of your favorite baseball players, all you can eat food (including cookies and ice cream sundaes), and unlimited video games at the ESPN Zone all while supporting a great cause: Truly Heaven on Earth for the BaseballBoy!  This event was so much fun.  That said, having Zac get to speak with Robert Champagne was especially rewarding!  Robert is the proud father of the inspiration for C.J.’s charity, Micah. Micah is the young man who’s poem we quoted in the initial BakerBoys&Baseball Blog.  Not lost amid all of the fun, is that this great evening and all those who came out tonight support it, including C.J.’s Angel teammates: C.J. Cron, Kole Calhoun, Matt Shoemaker, Cory Rasmus, Cam Bedrosian, and Andrew Heaney, were here to help raise awareness and financial support to help those who suffer from hemophilia, like Micah.  Here is Micah’s poem for those of you who missed it:

I am a boy, who cannot clot,
And that is why I get shots.
Because of my port,
I can’t play sports.
But I still have fun and like to run
And play in the sun.
I also need help to grow,
And sometimes I like to be slow
But that doesn’t stop me from wanting to play in the snow.
As long as I do what the doctors say,
I will always be able to play!

We have been lucky enough to attend C.J.’s event the past two years and we encourage everyone to come on out and show your support and love.  Here is the link to C.J.’s charity:  http://cjwcc.org/.  The event happens once a year, but you can help whenever and however you are able.  This is straight from C.J.’s website.

C.J. Wilson’s Children’s Charities raises funds, awareness, and most importantly, youth participation in community service and charitable giving that will directly benefit children and their families affected by chronic life-threatening illnesses, or dealing with financial and social challenges. To encourage a more compassionate and responsible society, we especially focus on inspiring local children, teens and young adults to be involved in charity at an early age, making it entertaining and personally rewarding.”

Go to The Hemophilia Federation of America, http://www.hemophiliafed.org/, to find out how you can get involved.  Thank you C.J. for being an example of how to get involved and showing how P.M.A (Positive Mental Attitude) can change the world!

Normally, we close with what you can expect the next time you hear from The BakerBoys&Baseball and I am sure it will be something fun to share with you all, but we don’t have a set plan other that seeing all of our friends at the ball park very soon.  In the mean time, keep filling the in between pauses with meaningful, thoughtful moments and go out to the ball park and have some fun with your friends and family!
