Craig Breslow founded the Strike 3 Foundation in 2008. It's for childhood cancer research. Breslow was moved by his own sister's successful battle against cancer.
I don't know if CB wrote the copy himself, but you have to wonder if all this was necessary: "This winter, when the impulse to give back became overwhelming, so too did the impetus. I recalled with a familiarity all too real, the morbidity that permeated our house when my sister, at age 14, was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. But I remember with even more vivid clarity, the euphoric response to the declaration of her being cancer free after treatment."
Sorry, slow news day. Umm... Abe Alvarez is playing winter ball in Puerto Rico and not performing that well. At least he's got sunshine.
