Red Cross President McGovern Pitches Baseball, Text Donations & Preparedness At Yankee Stadium

June 15th, 2010 · No Comments

On Sunday afternoon at Yankee Stadium, American Red Cross President Gail McGovern was ‘pitching’ in more ways than one.

She threw out the ceremonial first pitch (video below), while the Stadium scoreboard asked the crowd to make a text donation to the Red Cross (photo below). And, the public address announcer urged fans to take steps to prepare for unexpected emergencies.I don’t know how successful the texting or preparedness solicitation were, but her throw to Yankees’ catcher Jorge Posada looked pretty good.
