Beach Bums Director of Media & Broadcasting Chad Cooper is coordinating the effort and kicked off the drive by pledging $2 for every run Traverse City scores for the remainder of the month of May towards tornado relief.
â??Being a professional sports team, we have a unique opportunity to connect with a large number of people,â?? said Cooper. â??The Beach Bums and their fans are among the most generous people we know and together we want to help make a difference in the lives of our fellow Americans who have had their lives torn apart by this tragedy.â??
Fans can participate by emailing their pledge per run scored to firstname.lastname@example.org and putting May for Moore in the subject. No pledge amount per run scored to the relief effort is too small. Fans are also asked to use the hashtag #mayformooreok in any tweets they may send.
The Beach Bums have 9 games remaining in May.
