Dodgers Win 2010 NL Bobby Murcer Award

This past weekend was the 2010 "Going to Bat for B. A. T" Fundraising Dinner. As a part of the event the NL Bobby Mercer Award was awarded to the Dodgers- see the photo above as Steve Garvey accepts the award for the organization. See more pics here on Facebook. Below is a little bit about this prize out of Wikipedia.
Since 2003, members of B.A.T. have visited each team in Major League Baseball and solicit donations, all of which are given back to former players and members of the Baseball Family. The visits also educate the players to be the eyes and the ears of the B.A.T. organization by letting B.A.T. know about anyone who may be in need of assistance. The teams that donate the most money to aid others are honored each year with the Bobby Murcer Award. This year, the tour generated almost 2 million dollars in donations for the neediest members of the Baseball Family.
