    HELP make a DIFFERENCE for those IN NEED!!! :)

    Since September 11, 2001, Americans have come together as never before in
    our generation. But now, we must come together once again to overcome
    our greatest challenge yet.

    Hundreds of Major League Baseball players in our very own nation are living
    at, just below, or in most cases far above the seven-figure salary level.
    And as if that weren't bad enough they could be deprived of their life
    giving pay for several months, possibly longer, as a result of the upcoming
    strike situation. But you can help!

    For only $20,835 a month, about $694.50 a day (that's less than the cost of
    a large screen projection TV) you can help a MLB player remain economically
    viable during his time of need. This contribution by no means solves the
    problem as it barely covers the annual minimum salary, but it's a start,
    and every little bit will help. Although $700 may not seem like a lot of
    money to you, to a baseball player it could mean the difference between
    spending the strike golfing in Florida or on a Mediterranean cruise. For
    you, seven hundred dollars is nothing more than a month's rent, half a
    mortgage payment, or a month of medical insurance, but to a baseball
    player, $700 will partially replace his daily salary.

    Your commitment of less than $700 a day will enable a player to buy that
    home entertainment center, trade in the year-old Lexus for a new Ferrari,
    or enjoy a weekend in Rio.


    Each month, you will receive a complete financial report on the player you
    sponsor. Detailed information about his stocks, bonds, 401(k), real estate,
    and other investment holdings will be mailed to your home. Plus, upon
    signing up for this program, you will receive an unsigned photo of the
    player lounging during the strike on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean
    (for a signed photo, please include an additional $150). Put the photo on
    your refrigerator to remind you of other peoples' suffering.


    Your MLB player will be told that he has a SPECIAL FRIEND who just wants to
    help in a time of need. Although the player won't know your name, he will
    be able to make collect calls to your home via a special operator in case
    additional funds are needed for unforeseen expenses.


    I would like to sponsor a striking MLB player. My preference is checked

    [ ] Outfielder

    [ ] Starting Pitcher

    [ ] Entire team (Please call our 900 number to ask for the cost of a

    [ ] Alex Rodriguez (Higher cost: $60,000 per day)

    Please charge the account listed below $694.50 per day for the player for
    the duration of the strike. Please send me a picture of the player I have
    sponsored, along with an Alex Rodriguez 2001 Income Statement and my very
    own Donald Fehr MLB Players Union pin to wear proudly on my hat (include
    $80 for hat).

    Lol, personally I've always thought that baseball players were payed WAY to much. I mean really, some get paid millions of dollars to hitt a damn ball with a stick. We have people selling insurance and fighting for our countries who don't get paid that kind of money. IMHO, it's sick.

    Baseball players amongst some others, such as actors, are way way overpaid. The average individual works 3 times harder at least and won't make that much in a lifetime!

    Virtually any occupation has more real value than playing baseball. Whether you work with computers, cars, medical field, lawyers you name it, there is more value to any of these jobs. And while some of these occupations are money earners for sure, no one makes millions of dollars per year. What makes baseball players worth more than the rest of us?

    People starving in our own countries and around the world, it is criminal. Burns my butt. Think of what their salaries could do for world poverty.
