For Immediate Release: May 1, 2007
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.”
