8/27 Good guys
Darwin Barney, Bryan LaHair, James Russell and Jeff Samardzija will help about 50 children from the Cubs Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) program have a fun time at Monday’s game. The kids will receive round-trip transportation to the game, meet the players, get free tickets, food and beverages, part of the Major League Baseball Players Trust’s “Buses for Baseball” program. The Players Trust is supported by the Cubs organization in providing a unique, up close and personal opportunity to share the thrill of Major League Baseball with those less fortunate. The Cubs RBI program has operated in the Chicago area since 2000 and reaches over 600 youth ages 5-18. It is designed to increase participation and interest in baseball, especially among minorities, and to increase the number of talented athletes prepared to play in college and the minor leagues.
