Bordick, Miller join prostate cancer fund-raiser

June 17, 1999

The Orioles' Mike Bordick and Ray Miller are among the more than 70 major-league players and managers promoting a home run challenge to raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer research.

From June 20 through June 25, every home run hit in major-league games will raise money for research to cure the disease, which affects one of every six American men. Individuals can pledge from 25 cents to $10,000 for each home run hit, and donations benefit CaP CURE, the Association for the Cure of Cancer of the Prostate, as well as the Cancer Research Institute and the National Prostate Cancer Coalition.

Pledges can be made by calling 800-547-CURE or by going online to Yahoo! Sports at http: //sports.yahoo.com. Last season, 127 home runs were hit during the 60 designated games, raising more than $6.5 million in pledges. The Orioles have designated June 22 as "CaP Cure Day."
