The Howell resident has solicited the support of baseball players, like former Astros star Craig Biggio and Sean Casey of the Red Sox and companies like Rawling’s, Louisville Slugger and Modell’s. The idea is to not only tell the story of the importance of giving back but to raise money to help children who need sporting equipment. Salomon and the authors of “A Glove of Their Own” have set it up whereby proceeds from each book go to various charities and purchasers can even designate ones to support.
The 24-page book uses rhyme and pictures to tell a warm story of a group of young baseball players. But those involved hope it will do much more than that and eventually raise awareness and funds for children across the nation. It was inspired by a birthday party held for one of the authors children in which guests were asked not to bring gifts but rather donate baseball equipment for children for those in need.
The book comes out next month but you can reserve your copy now and learn more about the mission behind this grand slam effort by visiting their web site: agloveoftheirown.com.
