Philadelphia Phillies Host Tug McGraw Foundation to Raise Awareness for Brain Tumors

PHILADELPHIA and YOUNTVILLE, Calif., March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Citizens Bank Park will be filled with that "Ya Gotta Believe" spirit on April 30 when the Philadelphia Phillies and the Tug McGraw Foundation celebrate "Tug McGraw Foundation Brain Tumor Awareness Night" as the Phillies take on the New York Mets.

Tug McGraw – legendary Phillies and Mets pitcher known for his "Ya Gotta Believe" spirit – succumbed to brain cancer in 2003. The Foundation he established before his death raises funds to support research and programs to improve quality of life for patients diagnosed with brain tumors and other neurological conditions.

"Great players like Tug McGraw and John Vukovich fought this battle; now, my great friend, Ricky Stone, is also fighting a brain tumor," said Brad Lidge, closer for the Phillies. "This event is an important effort to raise awareness for thousands of adults and children who face this diagnosis."

"Tug McGraw Foundation Brain Tumor Awareness Night," which kicks off Brain Tumor Awareness Month, will feature a "Screwball VIP pre-game party" taking place at the Phillies Party Tent along with special guests to be announced. The event will include a silent auction of Phillies and Tim McGraw memorabilia, as well as a raffle for tickets to Tim McGraw's summer concert in Philadelphia.

A select number of tickets are available for the "Screwball VIP pre-game party." Orders for these will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Regular game tickets are also available. To order tickets visit:

"The Tug McGraw Foundation is making great strides in generating attention and research to improve quality of life for those who are affected by brain tumors and other neurological conditions," said Tim McGraw, Tug's son and TMF Honorary Chairman. "I'm grateful to the Phillies for making this event happen and for their ongoing support for Tug and others."

Proceeds from "Tug McGraw Foundation Brain Tumor Awareness Night" event will benefit the Foundation.
