Are you ready to be #spreadingORANGE with us at
Dunkin’ Donuts Park, Home of the Hartford Yard Goats?
On Sunday, July 21st, we are extremely excited to announce that we will be partnering with the Greater Hartford Twilight Baseball League (GHTBL) to present “The #spreadingORANGE Series for Multiple Sclerosis (MS)”.
This full-day Multiple Sclerosis fundraising and awareness event will consist of 4 baseball games that will all be played at the Yard Goats Stadium, which is home to the AA baseball team within the Colorado Rockies organization.
Throughout the day, players from all 8 teams of the GHTBL will be #spreadingORANGE and helping us raise awareness of Multiple Sclerosis by wearing orange socks, orange hats and using orange wood bats during the games. All bats will be proudly sponsored by, Tucci Limited Bat Company.
Leading up to the game, players will also be generously raising funds to help support the cause! Together, we have a goal of raising $10,000 from this event and we want YOU to be a part of it!
