Annual Senate/House Charity Baseball Game to Benefit American Cancer Society

Members of the Legislature will be readying their ace bandages, heating pads and crutches in anticipation of the fourth annual Senate vs. House baseball game. The game will begin at 4 p.m. at Oklahoma City’s Bricktown Ballpark on Wednesday, May 2, 2007.

Coach “Casey” Myers will again be leading the Senate Redhots team—hopefully to their fourth victory.

“Yes, the momentum is on our side because we are three-time champions. But our major weaknesses are that we are old and not very fast. And we’re afraid of getting hurt,” said Myers, noting about half the senators had already requested that they be placed on injured reserve.

Myers said the public and media are welcome to attend the pseudo-athletic event. There is no charge for attending, but spectators are encouraged to donate to the American Cancer Society.

Pat Marshall, government relations director for American Cancer Society of Oklahoma, said volunteers would be passing red buckets during the game to collect donations.

“We hope lots of people come to watch the game. I have to say it really is entertaining, but more importantly, this is a wonderful opportunity to raise money for cancer research that will lead us to a cure.”
