Major league umpires Jeff Kellogg, James Hoye and Will Little, part of the crew working the Orioles-New York Yankees game Tuesday night, visited Johns Hopkins Children's Center as part of the UMPS CARE Charities BLUE for Kids program. The crew, along with the Oriole Bird and Casey Cares Foundation, offered words of encouragement and Build-A-Bear stuffed animals to children with cancer or other illnesses. Each child was able to choose from a variety of pre-stuffed animals as well as clothing outfits for their new "furry" friend — including bear-sized Orioles uniforms. This was the 138th hospital visit umpires have hosted since the program began in 2006, and was the 13th of 14 scheduled visits during this season. For more information, go to UmpsCare.com.
