All sites across the Business of Sports Network, which includes The Biz of Baseball, will be highlighted in blue for one day to do our one thing.

Business of Sports Network Autism Awarness Campaign

UPDATE: We're pleased to add Russ Levine, VP of Digital Production for NHL.com to our supporters liist


This year marks the third annual Autism Awareness Campaign launched by the Business of Sports Network. Each year, we reach out and ask that for a few moments sports is set aside in favor of spreading the word about the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), as it is developmental disorder that is reaching alarm levels bordering on epidemic. This year, we have reached out to the sports and entertainment community to help lend support. In doing so, we have seen individuals that simply wish to help, but also those that are touched directly by autism. Be it the granddaughter of Seattle Mariners President Chuck Armstrong who has autism, Dodgers’ outfield Matt Kemp who has a brother with autism, actress Alyssa Milano who also has been directly touched by the developmental disorder, or Shonda and Curt Schilling, who is our featured interview this month, in reaching out to the community we have seen just how far reaching autism is.

With today being the beginning of International Autism Awareness Month, all the Business of Sports Network sites have been rebranded to remind you about this campaign, and within each post this month, we will be providing a link to Autism Speaks for those that wish to donate to assist in funding research on autism. We have also partnered with Autism Speaks to help promote their efforts, such as the “Light It Up Blue” campaign (for more see Fenway Park to Be Lit Up on Eve of 4/1 for "Light It Up Blue").

Autism Speaks is also granting space for a guest article by Maury Brown on their website next week which will give some further insight into how it touches not only him personally, but how autism reaches across every spectrum of life. (For more on how autism touches Brown's life see Biz of Baseball’s Maury Brown Speaks on Fatherhood and Autism)

The main point of the autism awareness campaign is for you to spread the word, and reach a better understanding of the developmental disorder.

Here is how the Autism Society of America describes autism:

Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and affects a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others. Autism is defined by a certain set of behaviors and is a "spectrum disorder" that affects individuals differently and to varying degrees. There is no known single cause for autism, but increased awareness and funding can help families today.

Autism is treatable. Children do not "outgrow" autism, but studies show that early diagnosis and intervention lead to significantly improved outcomes.

Here are some signs to look for in the children in your life:

  • Lack of or delay in spoken language
  • Repetitive use of language and/or motor mannerisms (e.g., hand-flapping, twirling objects)
  • Little or no eye contact
  • Lack of interest in peer relationships
  • Lack of spontaneous or make-believe play
  • Persistent fixation on parts of objects

The following information is provided by Autism Speaks:


Did you know ...

  • Autism now affects 1 in 110 children and 1 in 70 boys
  • Autism prevalence figures are growing
  • More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes & cancer combined
  • Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the U.S.
  • Autism costs the nation over $35 billion per year, a figure expected to significantly increase in the next decade
  • Autism receives less than 5% of the research funding of many less prevalent childhood diseases
  • Boys are four times more likely than girls to have autism
  • There is no medical detection or cure for autism

Prevalence vs. Private Funding

  • Leukemia: Affects 1 in 1,200 / Funding: $277 million
  • Muscular Dystrophy: Affects 1 in 100,000 / Funding: $162 million
  • Pediatric AIDS: Affects 1 in 300 / Funding: $394 million
  • Juvenile Diabetes: Affects 1 in 500 / Funding: $156 million
  • Autism: Affects 1 in 110 / Funding: $79 million

National Institutes of Health Funds Allocation

  • Total 2009 NIH budget: $35.9 billion
  • Of this, only $196 million goes directly to autism research. This represents 0.5% of total NIH funding.

IF YOU ARE WITHIN THE MEDIA, WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO JOIN THE CAMPAIGN, AS WELL AS AUTISM SPEAKS EFFORTS. LINK OR REPURPOSE THIS MATERIAL TO HELP THE CAUSE.

The following have lent their name in saying they support autism awareness, if you wish to be added to the list, please contact Maury Brown, president of the Business of Sports Network, for more details.

Upcoming Interview: Shonda and Curt Schilling on Challenges with Aspeger's Syndrome
User Rating: / 11
PoorBest 
Written by Maury Brown   
Monday, 29 March 2010 19:48

The Best Kind of DifferentAs part of the Business of Sports Network’s annual Autism Awareness Campaign, we will be providing occasional content that highlights the developmental disorder. The hope is that by understanding it more, parents will look for the signs to allow early diagnosis, and for those not touched directly by Autism Spectrum Disorder, get a better understanding how prevalent it is and how it is a growing health concern, not only in the U.S. but globally.

As part of this content, we are pleased to announce the publication of an interview with Shonda and Curt Schilling, and their challenges once they discovered their son Grant had Asperger’s Syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism.

Here is a preview of one of the questions and answers by Curt Schilling:

Maury Brown: Curt, Grant’s diagnosis came in the summer of 2007, your last season in baseball. The timing of the two allows you to now focus on Grant and the rest of the family without the distractions of playing. Let’s say that the diagnosis had come earlier... say, 2005. Do you think it would it have affected your career path in MLB?

Curt Schilling: No idea. I mean, we walked away when we wanted to walk away. I honestly don’t know; it depends on how we both would have addressed it at that point. I might have retired a year or two earlier, so I don’t know.

The interview will give sports fans a completely different view of Curt Schilling than they’ve ever seen before, while seeing an incredibly candid and touching side to his wife Shonda. The interview covers the publication of Shonda’s book, The Best Kind of Different: Our Family’s Journey with Asperger’s Syndrome.

Look for the complete interview on Thursday to coincide with beginning of International Autism Awareness Month.

Autism Awareness Campaign
The Biz of Baseball will take on special graphics as part of the Business of
Sports Network Autism Awareness campaign throughout April

UPDATE (3/28): We are pleased to announce that we have added Larry Cancro, the Senior Vice President of Fenway Affairs for the Boston Red Sox. Who is also Chairman of Autism Speaks, New England and a Board member of Melmark, New England a school that specializes in autism and similar cognitive disabilities.


Starting on April 1, things will look a bit different here at The Biz of Baseball. But then, getting you to see things differently is part of the plan.

April marks the beginning of International Autism Awareness month. On Thursday, we will embark on our third annual Autism Awareness Campaign, with each site across the Business of Sports Network sporting special graphics and information about the developmental disorder.

This year we’re proud to announce that we have engaged a host of high-profile individuals and organizations in the campaign (see the list below). What we have asked them is simple: lend your name. In doing so, they recognize the need to spread autism awareness.

While the same content you have come to expect will be published across the sites, there will be occasional content focused on autism awareness. For one, there will be an interview with Shonda and Curt Schilling about how Asperger’s Syndrome has touched them personally through their son Grant. The interview will focus on the challenges they have faced, and touch on Shonda’s book The Best Kind of Different: Our Family's Journey with Asperger's Syndrome in which Curt writes the Forward (for more on the book, see here). We also are in touch with Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp for an interview. Kemp’s brother has autism and is an advocate in fundraising and awareness of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

As part of our efforts we have partnered with Autism Speaks. There will be links for those that wish to donate to their efforts, plus special content that Autism Speaks has provided to the Ad Council. I will also be writing a guest article for their blog, and they plan to promote our content.

Finally, we will be looking to you and the media for assistance. If you have a way to help spread the word – be it through a blog, mainstream outlet, radio, or television – a plug of any size would do wonders.

While the bulk of the information will be coming throughout April, we want to pass this along now:

1% or 1 in every 110 children has been diagnosed with autism, including 1 in 70 boys. This represents a staggering 57 percent increase from 2002 to 2006, and a 600 percent increase in just the past 20 years (source: U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC))

Below is a list of those that are lending their name to promoting autism awareness. If you are in the business of sports or entertainment and wish to assist, please contact us.

Minor league attendanceThe Biz of Baseball has been updated with new data....

Last year, The Biz of Baseball launched its Minor League Attendance database. The resource, the only one of its kind online, provided details on minor league attendance dating back to 2005 to 2008. Recently, we added in 2009's data, but you wanted more.

Now you've got it.

The minor league database has now been updated with MLB club affiliation. This way, users can see which Single, Double, and Triple-A clubs are associated to their MLB counterpart

To see this new data, select the following link (or the image above):

Special thanks for Tim Collins for his database work with The Biz of Baseball

Maury  BrownMaury Brown, the president of the Business of Sports Network will be on WELW (AM 1330), Willoughby/Cleveland area at 10:10pm ET on Sunday evening talking competitive balance in Major League Baseball.
