Major League Baseball Clubhouse Managers Association (MLBCMA) teams up with New Era to support Caps For Kids
For children or adolescents diagnosed with cancer, the support of a hero can help turn their struggles into triumphs.
The Major League Baseball Clubhouse Managers Association – with donated caps from New Era – has sent signed caps from all thirty teams to the Caps For Kids Program, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to providing baseball caps to cancer stricken children and adolescents undergoing chemotherapy treatment. The donated caps are autographed by celebrities, athletes and other notable entertainers and provided at no cost.
Dr. Stephen Heinrich, a pediatric orthopedic surgeon in New Orleans, Louisiana, founded Caps For Kids in 1993.
With more than 125 chapters at medical facilities throughout the United States and Canada, Caps For Kids works with a network of volunteers to secure autographed caps for cancer stricken children and adolescents undergoing chemotherapy treatments. More than 10,000 children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer each year in the United States. Their goal is to put a cap on every one of their heads.
The Major League Baseball Clubhouse Managers Association is comprised of 60 members and is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization involved in several charitable endeavors.
New Era, headquartered in Buffalo, NY is the official on-field cap for Major League Baseball.
