By Ronald Blum Published 5:06 pm PDT, Saturday, June 29, 2019 LONDON — Rest assured, British fans: Most baseball games are not like this, not even the crazy ones between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. Major League Baseball arrived in Europe on Saturday night with Ye Olde Slugfest. Each team scored six runs in a first inning that stretched nearly an hour, with Aaron Hicks hitting the first European homer. Brett Gardner had a tie-breaking, two-run drive in the third, Aaron Judge went deep to cap a six-run fourth and the Yankees outlasted their rivals 17-13. Before a sellout crowd of 59,659 at London Stadium that included fans from Britain, Beantown and the Big Apple plus Prince Harry and wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, batters behaved like good tourists.

Most marathoners run for a reason. For a select bunch at the 2019 Boston Marathon, that reason will be one of the Boston Athletic Association’s 36 official charities. Established in 1989, the B.A.A.’s Boston Marathon Official Charity Program provides entries to nonprofit organizations. The organizations then recruit runners, who must fundraise a minimum of $5,000 each. “It’s a very important part of the work we do and is one of the ways the B.A.A. is able to give back to the eight cities and towns along the route that do so much to support us,” said Nicole Juri, the B.A.A.’s manager of charity and community partnerships. The 2018 charity runners raised $19.2 million, according to a July press release by the B.A.A.

All participating charities focus on health, fitness, and the local community, with causes … [Read more...] about The Boston Marathon has 36 official charity teams. Here’s how you can donate to them.
