On July 9th, 2010, AngelsWin.com had the opportunity to interview Fred Lynn as SUBWAY kicked off its second annual event for SUBWAY Baseball DeSIGNS Tour. SUBWAY Baseball DeSIGNS is part of SUBWAY’S commitment to promote healthy active lifestyles for families by raising awareness and funds for the Little League Urban Initiative. Over 41 athletes and stars signed baseballs designed and decorated by Little Leaguers which are being auctioned off now through August 29th, 2010. Athletes and celebrities who signed baseballs include:
Basketball: Blake Griffin
Baseball: Joe Torre, Dave Winfield, Ryan Howard, Orel Hershiser, Fred Lynn, Dan Uggla, Ken Griffey Sr., Andre Dawson, Josh Johnson, CC Sabathia, Heath Bell, Adrian Gonzalez, Alex Rodriguez, Bucky Dent
Football: Michael Strahan, Ndamukong Suh, C.J. Spiller, Amani Toomer

All of the baseballs are available for auction from today, August 20th, until August 29th. Fans can bid on all of the baseballs here or can go to http://www.subwaykids.com/ to see all of the baseballs. All of the money raised from the sale of these baseballs will go to support Little League baseball and should be tax deductible charitable contributions.
Angels fans, while times may be tough, this is a great opportunity to do something for the future of the sport that we love. Supporting the Little League Baseball Urban Initiative through Subway DeSIGNS is a great way to ensure that we will see the most talented players in the future.
Last year, Subway DeSIGNS raised approximately $5,000.00 for Little League Baseball. Hopefully Angels fans will dig deep and help Subway double their contribution to the future of the game.
