strike out slavery

Chris played in an epic 49 hour baseball game a few weekends ago! It was a long weekend, but they broke another world record. Most importantly, they raised $49,000 for Mercy Project!

Chris batted...
caught...
batted some more...
and batted again...
He played almost all the field positions (except pitcher)!

Scout hung out with me at the ballpark. :)

He didn't even mind the windy weather! (He looks like a little white lion!)

They played a few hours on, few hours off. This was Chris' 'bed' for those 49 hours.

They actually ended up playing 49 hours and 20 seconds.

So proud of him and all the players that played! So grateful for people who are willing to sweat, be exhausted, be sore, play baseball a ridiculously long time, etc to change a child slave's life in Ghana!

I'm not really an athletic person and I haven't seen a real baseball game (yes, too bad). But does it really last that long? 49hours? And your husband by the way is awesome :)

That is so amazing! I can't believe people can play ball that long. $49K that is amazing too! Great job!
