Registration open for Damon Runyon 5K at Yankee Stadium

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on May 07, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Once again, you can run through Yankee Stadium for an awfully good cause this year. Registration is now open for the Damon Runyon 5K at Yankee Stadium. Here are the details from the group that runs the race.

While the New York Yankees take on the Blue Jays in Toronto on August 12, thousands of baseball fans, runners, cancer survivors, and supporters will gather at Yankee Stadium for the fourth annual Damon Runyon 5K at Yankee Stadium.  Since 2009, the run/walk has raised more than $1.4 million for the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation, which funds groundbreaking cancer research conducted by today’s most innovative young scientists.

The first heat of the 5K will launch at 9:30 a.m. from inside Gate 4 before winding through the legendary ballpark’s concourses and ramps. Participants will climb stairs between levels and appear on the center field video board as they take two laps around the warning track that circles the field. Over the past four years, the Runyon 5K has become one of New York’s most unique summer events and the only charitable run/walk to use the iconic stadium as its course.

Registration for individuals and teams opened (last week) at www.damonrunyon.org/yankeestadium and is limited to the first 4,000 registrants.  Participants pay a $40 registration fee and must fund raise at least $60. On July 12, the registration fee will increase to $50. Family and friends will have the opportunity to meet Damon Runyon scientists and watch the event from the Delta SKY360° Suite overlooking home plate.

100% of all funds raised by participants will go directly to Damon Runyon cancer researchers. “We’re so grateful to the New York Yankees and all of our sponsors for helping make this possible year after year,” said Lorraine W. Egan, President and CEO of the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation. “And we couldn’t ask for better supporters. They really enjoy the incredible Stadium views and work so hard every summer to raise money for cancer research.”

The Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation, established in 1946 and based in New York City, has a long history with the Yankees.  Joe DiMaggio was on its Board of Directors and Mickey Mantle was an active fundraiser.  Damon Runyon himself was a New York writer who began his career as a baseball journalist, revolutionizing how the game was covered and often reporting on Yankees games.

Last year’s event raised more than $730,000 and drew a capacity crowd of 4,000 participants — from 5 to 76 years old and traveling from 30 states.

    It’ll be like a greyhound race, but instead of a mechanical rabbit the racers will chase a little animatronic Brian Cashman, who will be depicted talking on the phone with Jack Z and dooming the Yankee franchise for years to come.

    Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends. We’re so glad you could attend. Come inside. Come inside.

    No sillier than having already installed Montero in the HOF.

    Well not “actually”, because he’d have to retire for 5 years after playing for 10, and then again we’d have to actually have some HOF voters here. But there are plenty here who have already assumed he’s heading there.

    While I’m not thrilled about our return (would have preferred Gio), I don’t miss Jesus Montero. His production thus far is really nothing to miss. I’m not saying he’ll stay down at this level but so far I don’t miss him and I’m not hoping to miss him and I’m not hoping that others will miss him.

    —————

    You never thought much of him anyway so it’s not a surprise you don’t miss him.

  7. Rich in NJ May 7th, 2012 at 5:23 pm

    Well at least we can maybe look forward to signing Harper if he becomes a free agent. Since he came up so early he will be in his prime and he said he wants to play here. That is if we turn back into the Yankees and stop acting like the Pirates

    ————————

    I hope his Yankee fandom stays as high as it is now. He had to erase some tweets of his during the playoffs because National fans were upset he was rooting for the Yankees.

    Cashman has enough real problem issues to worry about. I’ll give him a pass on bad trade puffery.

    If these gullible fans think so highly about Montero because of what Cashman said then they should also trust that he knew what he was doing when he traded Montero away, no?

  22. Rich in NJ May 7th, 2012 at 5:39 pm

    Who thinks highly Montero merely because of what Cashman said?

  23. Jerkface May 7th, 2012 at 5:41 pm

    Scouts around baseball have comped Montero’s various abilities to hall of fame type hitters. Probably because he is a really great prospect and if he reaches the level he was scouted for, he would be a hall of fame talent. There is of course a difference between being a hall of fame player and having a few hall of fame type seasons. Consistency isn’t something that can really be scouted. Guys like Evan Longoria, Josh Hamilton, etc have the talent and will certainly be elite/dominant but maybe not like Jeter or A-rod who was good for 100 years.

    Montero could be Miguel Cabrera for 8 years and if he gets old and fat and dies then he won’t really be a hall of famer, but would you argue with the 8 years of production?

  24. Abomb82 May 7th, 2012 at 5:43 pm

    Even the scouts/analysts who didn’t think Montero could catch thought he had an elite bat and said as much. The only questions were about where he’d play, not if he would be a beast of a hitter.

    I remember watching MLBN in December (before he was traded) and they had Heyman, Callis, and some other guy to evaluate the breakout prospects in 2011 and all of them picked Montero.

    Everyone loved his bat, that was never in question.

  25. Wave Your Hat May 7th, 2012 at 5:45 pm

    Montero’s unlikely to be Miguel Cabrera. But counsel for the HOF case rests…

  26. Nick in SF May 7th, 2012 at 5:46 pm

    “Who thinks highly Montero merely because of what Cashman said?”

    Hopefully nobody, but virtually every time someone says it’s a little premature to be making these grandiose comparisons, someone else on here will say “it’s Cashman’s fault, look at what he said!”.

    It must be a Pavlovian response.

  27. butterball May 7th, 2012 at 5:46 pm

    Huh….I always thought Runyon was a Chicago guy. All those mobsters……

  28. blake May 7th, 2012 at 5:48 pm

    “We can start with those who said he had a bat llike Pujols or Cabrera, and go from there.”

    I think physically he does…..but that’s only part of the game…..the mental part and intangibles are hard to predict……but just finding bats with that kind of potential is tough…..doesn’t mean he will 100% do it….but I think its possible.

  29. Giuseppe Franco May 7th, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    GreenBeret7 May 7th, 2012 at 5:02 pm

    Not denigrating Montero’s efforts. I hated the trade then and now, but, still a tad early to spill so many tears and so much whine about how Cashman got screwed on the deal. and predicting or projecting 100 at bats is beyond ridiculous. Jeter’s on pace for 240 hits, Swisher is on pace 35 homers, 45 doubles and 125 RBI.

    ———

    Can’t speak for others but I refrained from watching SEA ballgames (or highlights) as well as the daily tracking of Montero’s box scores.

    The only reason I know any of Montero’s current numbers is because they are posted almost daily within these walls.

    You have to admit, this place was a ghost town during the offseason and this trade, for better or worse, brought back several regulars and spawned a lot of intense discussion and emotion.

    I tend to defend Montero when people downplay ability, but otherwise, I would prefer the topic would die. I don’t need to be reminded daily just how much I’ve hated this trade from the get-go.

  30. Rich in NJ May 7th, 2012 at 5:52 pm

    “Hopefully nobody, but virtually every time someone says it’s a little premature to be making these grandiose comparisons, someone else on here will say “it’s Cashman’s fault, look at what he said!”.

    The comparisons are meaningless when one looks at the trade on the merits.

    “It must be a Pavlovian response.”

    They continual need for some people to bring him up is…

    If you guys are in the NYC area you should do the Damon Runyan 5k. My wife & I have the past few years and it’s a great event where you get to run 2 laps around the field.

    Unfortunately, the Bronx is roughly 800 miles from my house or I’d very much consider running a 5K through Yankee Stadium.

    Should he have resigned in protest instead?

    I doubt that Hal and Levine ever heard of Pineda before the trade.

    But let’s say it’s true, if you take the big GM check, the trade and free agent signing calls are on you.

  43. Red Lobster May 7th, 2012 at 6:26 pm

    The reason everyone has left this blog and this place is a ghosttown is because of the Montero fanboys and their 24/7 coverage of him. I’ve never seen this much attention for a .260 hitting DH. Fans want to talk baseball, not talk about a player who is no longer here. Also, I think Cashman knows a little more about baseball than the fanboys here. Only here is a #1 starter got back in the trade ridiculed in favor of a .250 hitting DH with no position. The powers that be at lohud need to put an end to this Montero talk, as it has driven all the good posters away.

  44. mick May 7th, 2012 at 6:27 pm

    Loved the Harper steal of home.
    Hamels a punk, we want him?

    “The reason he keeps getting the big GM check is because he follows orders.”

    Again, it doesn’t matter. With that check comes the credit or blame for the trades and free agent signings no matter who is calling the shots.

    Can we drop more confetti if we win game 6 at MSG?

  48. tomingeorgia May 7th, 2012 at 6:30 pm

    mick,
    Hamels is a prototype red sox kind of guy.

  49. blake May 7th, 2012 at 6:31 pm

    “I doubt that Hal and Levine ever heard of Pineda before the trade.”

    I highly doubt Hal said …..trade Montero for Pineda…..but what he may have said is….Brian I want you to improve the rotation…..we need a frontline starter…..but I don’t want any more big contracts……and then that lead to what happened. I would guess Cashman would have much rather signed Darvish or wait on Hamels than to trade Montero….but who knows.

  50. Yank 97 May 7th, 2012 at 6:32 pm

    I highly doubt Hal told Cashman specifically to trade Montero. If anything, he may have laid out the parameters for the $189 mil budget and told him to work off that.

    There were many things Cash could have done to improve the pitching without the need to trade away Montero. The irony is that Cashman spent all winter/spring telling us how Pineda is a project who still needs to develop a 3rd pitch and he is not a #2 yet and he will only if he continues to develop, etc. So Cashman didn’t even get a guy who was a lock to be a solution for the pitching and it cost him the best bat in the system.

    But remember, Cashman has been trying to trade Montero for years, as long ago as 2009 when he tried to get Lee from Cleveland. And this was months after he spent $200 million on CC and AJ. I think Cashman just lacks creativity and is obsessed with pitching.

  51. mick May 7th, 2012 at 6:33 pm

    With that check comes the credit or blame for the trades and free agent signings no matter who is calling the shots.

    Stick Michael found a way to keep Bernie, Posada, Mariano, and maybe even Jeter despite George’s meddling and dictatorial ways.

    If Cashman thought that highly of Montero, I suspect there was a way to do it.

    “It’s absurd. The GM then has no power. Without power how does he get credit or blame? He’s just the messenger. Unless he initiated it.”

    You’re saying he has no power. I don’t think it’s true. Either way, at the end of the say (/Rolle), it doesn’t matter.

    Mr. mick,
    Only if he used an assumed name, which I assume he would.

  56. mick May 7th, 2012 at 6:37 pm

    If Hal demanded to trade to get pitching Cashman has to jump or Hal gets someone else to play the role of GM.
    Cash covered his ass for his next job by absolving himself for an inferior trade, albeit all that was out there , by saying he was a Cabrera type.
    Who trades a Cabrera type?

  57. blake May 7th, 2012 at 6:38 pm

    Rich,
    Yea im not saying Cashman fought the idea….just that he may have felt that was the best chance to improve the rotation and fit within Hals budget land……

  58. mick May 7th, 2012 at 6:39 pm

    You’re saying he has no power.
    ===================
    He has complained of that before.
    He is an ex-intern who has been acting like a child and for those reaSONS should lose his job as he prolly thinks he will eventually unless he continues to follow orders.
    When they need a scapegoat they will fire him to appease the fans if necc.

  59. austinmac May 7th, 2012 at 6:41 pm

    I do think Harper has a bit of the hot dog in him. Hamels suggested he shouldn’t. That doesn’t deter me from the pipe dream of the Yankees going after him.

  60. blake May 7th, 2012 at 6:42 pm

    Sign Hamels.

    would you marry him under an assumed name?

  63. Yank 97 May 7th, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    After 2013, they would have lost the salary of Burnett, Kuroda, Soriano, Martin, Swisher, Granderson, Rivera, Hughes. A-Rod’s number is going to continue to go down, 3 mil in 2014 from 2013, 7 mil in 2015 from 2013. Jeter has a player option for $9 mil less than his 2013 AAV.

    They could have signed Hamels and done some house-keeping to get things back. If they let everyone except Granderson/Cano walk. And they could have been proactive and try to lock up Cano now rather than wait till FA.

    Cashman took the easy way out – the budget is not as bad as it appears. Just need to be creative and lose a couple of people we may want to keep. It was not like there was no way of improving the pitching without trading Montero.

  64. Villa Nova-Ya May 7th, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    I can’t listen to that narrative anymore.

    Cashman wasn’t necessarily trying specifically to trade Montero for years.

    Cashman HAS been trying to trade for a top line pitcher for years. Tell me, if you aren’t going to trade your top pitching prospects, look at the minor leagues and tell me who else they had besides Montero to trade?

    And Pineda, while the Yankees may have wanted him to develop a third pitch or to continue to develop a third pitch, WAS an All-Star in 2011.

    And it ought to be noted that Montero alone was not enough to the top pitching; other players were always in the mix.

  65. mick May 7th, 2012 at 6:44 pm

  66. tomingeorgia May 7th, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    Hamels said he meant to hit Harper. I don’t think such “old time” pitchers like Sal Maglie, Bob Gibson, Don Drysdale or Early Winn would say any such thing. “It slipped out of my hand.”

  67. Abomb82 May 7th, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    “But remember, Cashman has been trying to trade Montero for years, as long ago as 2009 when he tried to get Lee from Cleveland. And this was months after he spent $200 million on CC and AJ. I think Cashman just lacks creativity and is obsessed with pitching.”

    That’s why I don’t think the budget was the sole reason for him trading Montero. He has lusted afte pitching for a while now and has used Montero as bait for that pitching.

    We would have been better off if we had a Lee/Halladay though. At least we knew those guys could slide right in as co-aces with CC. Not wait for a project who ‘might’ turn into a good pitcher in the future.

  68. Against All Odds May 7th, 2012 at 6:47 pm

    Maybe because he was against the trade? Possibly he was told to do it?

    ————

    You’re giving Cashman to much credit. He’s been trying to trade Jesus for the past couple of seasons.

    “Cashman HAS been trying to trade for a top line pitcher for years. Tell me, if you aren’t going to trade your top pitching prospects, look at the minor leagues and tell me who else they had besides Montero to trade?”

    I think the point is they shouldn’t trade their best prospects at all…..they should keep them and spend money to sign what they don’t have……that’s the Yankee model……it got broken for awhile because they weren’t developing players…..now they are developing players and have cut back on spending……it doesn’t do any good to develop players if you’re gonna trade them to save money……

  70. Rich in NJ May 7th, 2012 at 6:48 pm

    blake

    Maybe, but before the trade was made he felt compelled to publicly trumpet the idea that pitching held the keys to the kingdom and that he was willing to trade excess offense (which I think he was wrong about) for pitching. I’m not sure how that furthered his interests no matter what his agenda was or who was calling the shots.

    Plus, he dis-served ownership by spending his best asset on one of the riskiest pitchers out there. So, imo, he made his bed and he has to lie in it.

    Anyway, that ship has sailed.

    If I’m Cashman (or Hal or Levine or…), I want to find a way to get Tex and A-Rod to be able to emulate Jeter’s unbelievable resurgence. Leave no stone unturned. ;)

    Later.

  71. mick May 7th, 2012 at 6:48 pm

    It’s just that the GM should not get all the credit or blame for good or bad deals unless the owner or Mgr has no input.

  72. tomingeorgia May 7th, 2012 at 6:49 pm

    Edinson Volquez was an all-star too. So was Clay Buchholz. and Ubaldo Jiminez. and Liriano. and Joe Saunders. and Scott Kazmir. and Jurrjens. etc. etc.

    What do all-star games have to do with young pitchers becoming aces? Also, there were like 80 all-stars last year, so the term “all star” has become a joke anyway

    That’s why I don’t think the budget was the sole reason for him trading Montero. He has lusted afte pitching for a while now and has used Montero as bait for that pitching.
    =====================================
    Why has he lusted for pitching?
    Maybe to make up for all his failures.
    Failure is a relative term as he went for what he thought was the best out there.

    The reason everyone has left this blog and this place is a ghosttown is because of the Montero fanboys and their 24/7 coverage of him. I’ve never seen this much attention for a .260 hitting DH. Fans want to talk baseball, not talk about a player who is no longer here. Also, I think Cashman knows a little more about baseball than the fanboys here. Only here is a #1 starter got back in the trade ridiculed in favor of a .250 hitting DH with no position. The powers that be at lohud need to put an end to this Montero talk, as it has driven all the good posters away.

    And the good posters also think you’re nothing more than a troll who contributes jack to the discussion.

    So there’s that.

    I might check to see if the bride was bovine or ovine, though.

    Mr Tom,
    Serious question?
    I know you get paid a handsome piece of change to marry off people but would you do the same for a man and a cow or horse?

    That’s exactly why.

    Montero is the flavor of the month just as Joba was and Hughes is.
    In Yankeeland there will always be a hot topic of controversy as we are the center of the baseball universe.

    ==========================
    So he is trying to prove to his parents he is good enough?
    He too can be banished like Hank and will if he doesn;t follow orders.
    So much for “autonomy”, go climb a building or get a hooker instead.

    Hamels said he meant to hit Harper. I don’t think such “old time” pitchers like Sal Maglie, Bob Gibson, Don Drysdale or Early Winn would say any such thing. “It slipped out of my hand.”

    ——–

    Did Hamels actually say that? I only saw the highlights this morning while at the gym (no sound). Didn’t hear any commentary.

    If he did admit it, that would be a first. I don’t recall anyone ever admitting to it. At least not in recent memory.

  83. Against All Odds May 7th, 2012 at 7:03 pm

    This is Hughes and Joba didn’t cost the Yankees a young hitter.

    You’re giving him an easy out. Does anyone think Cashman isn’t in complete lock step with Hal when it comes to the budget. He probably loves the 189 goal

  85. Against All Odds May 7th, 2012 at 7:07 pm

    The thing is not this is

  86. mick May 7th, 2012 at 7:07 pm

    ====================
    True.
    People are fickle and if Pineda helps us win a title , they will only then forget Montero.

  87. mick May 7th, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    He probably loves the 189 goal
    ====================
    Would think his job would be a lot easier with an open checkbook.
    Now he will have to be creative, not a strong suit, after years of free spending.
    These are unchartered waters for Cashboy.

  88. Against All Odds May 7th, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    Pineda has to get healthy, learn a new pitch, pitch in NY, and eventually become a number 1 or 2. He has a long road in front of him.

    Didn’t Beckett admit to hitting someone once?
