MLB Goes to Bat for Rock the Earth at Bonnaroo

Major League Baseball’s Access To The Show is proud to announce the success of "Batting for Charity" at Bonnaroo 2008.

As a result of artist and fan participation, a donation of $5000 was made to Rock the Earth ( Rock the Earth is a not-for-profit, national public interest environmental organization dedicated to protecting and defending America's natural resources through partnerships with the music industry and the world-wide environmental community.

Bands and Fans alike stepped up to the plate to take a swing at the MLB Road Show. Ahead of the festival, Major League Baseball pledged to make a donation for every hit from artists who stepped into the cages. As well, any Bonnaroo attendee visiting the MLB Road Show batting cages would contribute $1 to the eventual sum donated to Rock the Earth, simply by stepping up to the plate.
