Mesa All-Star Charity Game

One of the fun things about Spring Training is to see all of the old ballplayers come to town - some as part of management, others as spectators. I suspect some try to relive the glory days. Who knows, but there may be a few of those types at the Mesa Charity All-Star game hosted by former Cubs All-Star Ferguson Jenkins.

The game will be played on March 25th at 7:10pm. It doesn't say where in the article but I suspect its at Hohokam Stadium.

According to the story: Half the proceeds go to the HoHoKams, who primarily fund youth sports programs. The other half goes to the Ferguson Jenkins Foundation, which funds such charities as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Red Cross, Special Olympics and Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.
