Baseball Coaches Against Multiple Myeloma at Berliner Park

Batter up for the cure! 132 youth baseball teams will compete in the 2nd annual Coaches Against Multiple Myeloma baseball tournament held at Berliner Park, May 6-8. Great baseball, a silent auction and fun for the kids! Help achieve the goal of raising over $30,000 this year!

Multiple Myeloma is a rare and incurable blood cancer that affects over 20,000 individuals annually. Last year with the help and generosity of coaches and teams of the Central Ohio Youth Baseball League (COYBL) and support throughout the state of Ohio over $27,000 was donated. 100% of the proceeds raised goes directly to The Ohio State University James Cancer Hospital and the Richard Solove Research Institute and laboratory of Doctor Don Benson and research staff to help in the ongoing fight to cure Multiple Myeloma. COYBL works in conjunction with Multiple Myeloma Opportunities for Research and Education (MMORE), a 501c3 charity organization committed to supporting research for treatments and a cure.

If you have questions or would like to make a donation, please email Doug Hare, COYBL league president, at coybl@columbus.rr.com. All donations made to the event are tax deductible.
