(Special Thanks To Pittsburgh Pirates Baseball, Michelle Mejia, Mr. Paul & Jessica Maholm)

Why am I helping Pittsburgh Children's Hospital? I was born with a club foot and i did't think i would walk. They helped me to walk and play baseball. I had to wear a cast on my leg & foot everyday till I was 8 months old, then I had surgery and had to wear a special shoe and brace! They helped me!

The Day Of The Game - A Poem By Me!

I had to write a poem for school.

The day of the game
By Elliot Mast


On the pitchers mound I see my dream come true in front of me.

In the batter’s box my dream is becoming a reality.

I hit the ball it soars through the sky I hear the crowd gasp and cry “He did it” “He did it”.

A homerun it has begun my dream come true my day in the sun.

Many more days like this I pray as the sun warms my face.

In this home of bats and balls I sit on the bench and Know here I cannot fall.

I hear them call number “12” You’re up to bat My hat holds in the thoughts I can’t deny this ball has got to hit the sky.

Another cry look how high this ball again has cleared the sky.

THE CHALLENGE!


Dear Friends, I CHALLENGE YOU!

I visited the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh on Friday. I was a little sad, touched, excited, and challenged. I want to challenge YOU today! If you read this, I ask that you forward this message (Tweet It, Linkedin It, Email It, Blog It, and Facebook It) to all your friends and donate one dollar $1 to help the kids at Children's Hospital. Let's see how many people can make a difference in the lives of kids who need your help!

I have dedicated my entire 2010 baseball season to the kids at the hospital to raise awareness and funds for them and the vital Child Life Program. The department of Child Life is responsible for making sure the kids' hospital experience is fun and not so scary. They help provide things like games, toys, video games, etc. There are often events in the hospital to provide entertainment and distraction for kid-patients. They do things like tail-gates, celebrity visits, and music/performance shows for the inpatients. While being in a hospital can be really scary, the Child Life department does their best to make the experience as fun and memorable (in a good way) as possible. They have playrooms on every floor and dedicated staff that work with the kids on projects and "fun time". The playrooms are medical-free zones - so no medicine, no doctors, no reports, nothing scary - it's all play, all the time! This is a really important part of the recovery and healing process for the kids and while insurance doesn't cover these types of necessities, they will always offer them - the kids need it and that's the most important thing. This is why we need you! So basically, money raised for this fund makes sure that kids can still be kids - and not just patients - when they're at Children’s Hospital.

Please join me by donating $1 to the hospital today. Here is how you can help: Donations Are Being Collected During The Entire Baseball Season:
