Spreading the wealth

A nice idea from a reader named Mike, who earlier this spring donated his extra Yankees spring training tickets to the Big Brothers and Sisters of Tampa Bay. After the game, he got an email that read, in part…

Scott and I really appreciate the generosity of the individual donating those tickets. Scott loves sports but I don’t think he knew how packed that game was going to be until we got there. I think that was the spring training game of the year.

Mike would like to suggest similar donations from other Yankees fans who have extra spring tickets. He asked that anyone interested email him — mike@classiccards.com — and he’ll put you in touch with his contact with Big Brothers and Sisters.

If you have tickets and can make it to the stadium, terrific. But if you have tickets and can’t use them all, there are certainly worse ideas than sending a kid to a game.
