The Dodgers have a busy weekend ahead as we host two very important days. On Saturday June 28th the Toronto Maple Leafs come to town for Rogers Game Day. Rogers has been a key sponsor of the Dodgers this season and has planned exciting events throughout the game. Also on hand will be the Toronto Raptors Mascot to help commemorate this special day.
Sunday June 29th the Dodgers will celebrate our 3rd annual Crohn’s and Colitis Day. Adam Garner (5-0) will be on the mound in support of his cousin Matt Tosoni. As many will remember, Matt played for the Dodgers from 2003-2007 and was forced to sit out his entire 2005 IBL and collegiate seasons recovering from three surgeries for ulcerative colitis. Miraculously, Matt has gone on to have a very successful college career with the St. John’s Red Storm. As a senior this season Matt posted a 6-1 record with a 1.72 ERA – one of the best in the country. His triumph over ulcerative colitis is in large part thanks to the medical advances that have already been made in the fight against these two diseases. With your help we aim to "find the cure" so no one has to suffer like Matt and the 180,000 Canadians who are struggling to cope with inflammatory bowel disease on a daily basis. For more information please visit www.ccfc.ca and we look forward to your support on Sunday.
