WALTHAM, Mass., Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Ryan Gagne, Account Executive at ZoomInfo, will be participating in 100 Innings of Baseball, a Boston-based annual charity event to raise money for ALS awareness and research. Gagne has been an active participant for 7 of the 11 years that the event has been running.
The event can last for more than 30 hours and commands roughly 100-150 participants. Gagne is part of a team of 30 die-hard players, referred to as the Ironmen players, who play for the duration of the event.
"I got involved through a friend of mine who I was playing in a league with. I was planning on staying for a couple of hours and ended up staying the whole 33 hours. When I initially got involved it was just to keep playing more ball that year, but I came back for the camaraderie – it brings a lot of folks back year after year. It's great to bond while supporting a great cause," said Gagne. "I like to do my part when I can. With ALS being so top of mind lately, raising support and awareness through the Ice Bucket Challenge, it's been great!"
This year's game will be joined by Pete Frates, the Boston College baseball player who took the internet by storm by helping the Ice Bucket Challenge go viral through a social media campaign.
Baseball players of all skill levels are encouraged to participate and other community members are welcome to spectate and support participants. The event is taking place in Quincy, Massachusetts from Saturday, October 11 - Sunday, October 12, 2014. Get more information here.
