With April being World Autism Month, The Biz of Baseball will occasionally be highlighting related news…
When I attended the Baseball Winter Meetings this past December in Dallas, one of the first encounters I had at the Anatole Hotel was with Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports and MLB Network. Walking up to say hi to Ken, he beat me to the punch.
“Maury, I’ve made it a priority to get a bow-tie from Autism Speaks for April.”
Such is Ken Rosenthal, one of the nicer guys you'll meet.
It took more work than was initially thought, but through Autism Speaks, and Bow-Tie Cause, the man that is now known for his bow-ties as part of the FOX MLB Game of the Week, Rosenthal will be wearing an Autism Speaks bow-tie on April 28. And while the player has yet to be determined, he’ll be interviewing one that has a story to tell as it relates to autism.
A special thanks to FOX' MLB Game of the Week and Rosenthal for promoting a different charity each week.
