Reminder... Numbers Don't Lie

"Men Lie Woman Lie, Numbers Don't"... Jay_Z .. Song Reminder

So often in baseball/softball players and teams are judged by numbers:
  • Number of  Runs
  • Number of Wins
  • Number of Homers
  • Numbers of Saves
  • Highest Batting Average
  • Batting Average with runners in scoring position
  • Highest On Base Percentage
  • Highest Slugging Percentage
  • etc

Over a long sample size numbers may not exactly be honest, but at least they give you the data you need to make informed decisions.

In my fundraising effort so far I’ve been focusing on 3 specific numbers:

1. In 2015, there will be an estimated 1,658,370 new cancer cases diagnosed and 589,430 cancer deaths in the US.  This sucks and has to be fought.

To do our small part I have focused on the following numbers

2) Total Charitable Contribution. This is what my fundrasing page looks like now

Excellent Start. Excellent.

3) Total Teams for Event

Rondas Grocery
Big Apple
Gashouse Goriilas
New School

Again Excellent... last year I had 6. Excellent

You don't have to play in the tournament to be an impact player. Anyone can contribute, $10, $20, $25,,, whatever you can afford here. No judgements. You can keep your donate amount private.

We are off to an amazing start, but at the end of the day numbers don't lie.

Please make an impact and help.
