FOX Sports Fan Express, Players Trust team to bring kids to Twins game
FOX Sports North partnered with The Player’s Trust to provide transportation to Starkey Hearing Foundation to today’s Twins game aboard the FOX Sports North Fan Express, as part of the Buses for Baseball Program. The program will provide over 750 youths from across the country with an unforgettable ballpark experience this season, as personal guests of the players.
Taking in today’s Twins-Rangers contest are members of Starkey Hearing Foundation, which centers on bringing understanding between people through caring and sharing.
Starkey Hearing Foundation fits more than 100,000 hearing aids annually to children and adults. Through 2010, more than 1 million hearing aids were provided to people in need, worldwide.
Through their Buses for Baseball program, Major Leaguers provide disadvantaged youth with memorable ballpark experiences. As the invited guests of the players, groups of children receive free transportation, T-shirts, tickets, food vouchers and are personally greeted by the players, who sign autographs and pose for pictures. In 2015, Buses for Baseball will roll into 15 locations, including Target Field. FOX Sports Regional Networks will once again offer their assistance to the Players Trust by providing free transportation to select Buses for Baseball visits via their luxurious FOX Sports Fan Express Buses.
