Book buyers can pick which legend they would like.
The cost for a book signed by the author and one of the legends, is $80. Proceeds from sales will be donated by Grassroots Baseball to UMPS CARE Charities.
About UMPS CARE Charities: UMPS CARE Charities was founded in 2006 through the compassion of Major League Baseball (MLB) umpires. UMPS CARE provides financial, in-kind and emotional support for America's youth and families in need. The UMPS CARE mission puts into action our established creed, "Helping People is an Easy Call". Through our youth-based programs, professional umpires enrich the lives of at-risk youth, children coping with serious illness and military families by providing memorable, once-in-a-lifetime, baseball experiences. Umpires make baseball magic on baseball fields across the country and give children reason to cheer by bringing Build-A-Bear Workshop experiences to them while they are undergoing rigorous medical treatment at hospitals. Through our scholarship initiative, we offer financial support to children adopted later in life.
