Cancer Survivors Honored and Local Youth Learn About Teamwork During the Games
DALLAS, June 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The best of the best in college softball will soon take the field in Oklahoma City. The 2009 NCAA Division I Women's College World Series championship games run June 1 through June 3 at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium, and AT&T* and the NCAA will be sharing the games with the American Cancer Society and The Oklahoma City Boys & Girls Club.
The opening game will be televised live June 1 on ESPN2 at 7:00 p.m. Eastern; and, thanks to AT&T and the NCAA, the ceremonial first pitch will also be thrown by a local cancer survivor. In support of the American Cancer Society's "Strike Out Cancer" initiative, AT&T and the NCAA are also recognizing 25 cancer survivors during the opening game.
Extending the value of teamwork and perseverance to local teens, AT&T is also hosting 10 youth from a local Oklahoma City Boys & Girls Club at the championship games. Attending teens will enjoy the games and a behind-the-scenes tour of the stadium.
"At AT&T, we work hard to connect fans with the sports and teams they love through our sponsorships," said Tim McGhee, executive director, AT&T corporate sponsorships. "In addition to celebrating some of our favorite hard-working teams, these games and events also provide great opportunities to share the value of teamwork and leadership with youth -- and to salute and celebrate local heroes. We're glad to extend these events to The Boys & Girls Club -- and the many cancer survivors who will be with us this week to help Strike Out Cancer."
