MLB Players: A Plea for Help!


TwistedFans Archive


     Americans have come together as  never before in our generation. We have banded together to overcome  tremendous adversity. We have weathered direct attacks on our own soil,  wars overseas, corporate scandal, layoffs, unemployment, stock price  plunges, droughts, fires, and a myriad of economic and physical  disasters both great and small. But now, we must come together once  again to overcome our greatest challenge yet.

     Hundreds of Major League Baseball players in our very own nation are living at, just  below, or in most cases far above the seven-figure salary level. And as  if that weren't bad enough they could be deprived of their life giving  pay for several months, possibly longer, as a result of the upcoming strike situation. But you can help!

     For only $20,835 a  month, about $694.50 a day (that's less than the cost of a large screen  projection TV) you can help a MLB player remain economically viable during his time of need. This contribution by no means solves the problem as it barely covers the annual minimum salary, but it's a start, and every little bit will help!

     Although $700 may not  seem like a lot of money to you, to a baseball player it could mean the  difference between spending the strike golfing in Florida or on a Mediterranean cruise. For you, seven hundred dollars is nothing more than a month's rent, half a mortgage payment, or a month of medical insurance, but to a baseball player, $700 will partially replace his daily salary.

     Your commitment of $700 a day  will enable a player to buy that home entertainment center, trade in the  year-old Lexus for a new Ferrari, or enjoy a weekend in Rio.


     Each month, you  will receive a complete financial report on the player you sponsor.  Detailed information about his stocks, bonds, 401(k), real estate, and other investment holdings will be mailed to your home. Plus, upon signing up for this program, you will receive an unsigned photo of the player lounging during the strike on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean (for a signed photo, please include an additional $150). Put the photo on  your refrigerator to remind you of other peoples' suffering.


     Your MLB player  will be told that he has a SPECIAL FRIEND who just wants to help in a  time of need. Although the player won't know your name, he will be able  to make collect calls to your home via a special operator in case additional funds are needed for unforeseen expenses.


     I would like to  sponsor a striking MLB player. My preference is checked below:

[ ] Infielder

[ ] Outfielder

[ ] Starting  Pitcher

[ ] Ace Pitcher

[ ] Entire team (Please call our 900  number to ask for the cost of a specific team - $10 per minute)

[ ] Alex Rodriguez (Higher cost: $60,000 per day)

     Please charge the account listed below $694.50 per day for the player for the duration of the strike. Please send me a picture of the player I have sponsored, along with an Alex Rodriguez 2001 Income Statement and my very own Donald Fehr MLB Players Union pin to  wear proudly on my hat (include $80 for hat).
