Second Baseman Officially Launches “Out of Park” CampaignWhite Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham is making a donation to the National Parkinson Foundation for every home run that he hits during the 2010 season and is asking his fans to join him. “Out of the Park for Parkinson’s” is an awareness campaign the second baseman officially launched today in partnership with the National Parkinson Foundation, to help end Parkinson’s disease.

Beckham and his family understand the challenges of Parkinson’s firsthand:  his grandfather has been living with the disease for nearly a decade.

“Living and helping my grandfather cope with Parkinson’s has given me an up-close look at the suffering it causes,” said Beckham. “I want to do something to raise awareness and funds to help eradicate the disease so future generations do not have to go through what our family countless others have been through with Parkinson’s.”
