I first mentioned this idea last March, and I’ll probably mention it again as we get closer to the Grapefruit League schedule. But this holiday season also seems like a good time to mention it.
Two springs ago, a reader of this blog named Mike donated extra Yankees spring training tickets to Big Brothers and Sisters of Tampa Bay. Afterward, 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 has suggested similar donations from other Yankees fans who end up with extra spring tickets (or from Yankees fans who feel like donating a gift to a worthy cause this time of year). He asked that anyone interested email him — firstname.lastname@example.org — and he’ll put you in touch with his contact with Big Brothers and Sisters.
You can buy spring training tickets online right now.
