Major Leaguers Create Memories for Children
Chicago-area children attend game as guests of White Sox
tickets for any Major League Baseball game
Chicago, Illinois, Wednesday, Aug., 6, 2008 -- Prior to tonight's game at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago, White Sox players Mark Buehrle, DJ Carrasco, Jermaine Dye, Josh Fields, Boone Logan, AJ Pierzynski, Nick Swisher and Jim Thome will provide everlasting memories to a group of underprivileged children as the Major League Baseball Players Trust's "Buses for Baseball" program visits the Windy City.

Courtesy of the players' charitable foundation, 40 children from Chicago-based Holy Cross/Immaculate Heart of Mary Youth, will receive round-trip transportation to the game, meet the players, and receive free tickets, food, beverages and souvenirs. "Buses for Baseball" provides many of the children with their first chance to attend a Major League Baseball game.

This season, "Buses for Baseball", a program administered by the Players Trust and underwritten by Majestic Athletic, a division of VF Imagewear, Inc., will provide transportation and personal greetings for more than 1,500 underprivileged children attending Major League Baseball games as invited guests of their big league heroes.

The Players Trust enjoys support from the Chicago White Sox organization in providing this unique, up close and personal opportunity to share the thrill of Major League Baseball with those less fortunate.

About the Major League Baseball Players Trust
