Great Day to Run Irish

Sharon Chapman took the FAFIF wristband to the Top of the Rock (by stairs!) in February.

March 17 seems like an ideal day to recall Met reliever extraordinaire Tug McGraw, who was known to enjoy every day like it was St. Patrick’s Day. Our friend Sharon Chapman has done a phenomenal job of keeping his memory alive by running in several events as a member of Team McGraw, raising funds for the Tug McGraw Foundation’s fight against brain cancer. She’ll be running that way again this season in Philadelphia (of all places) during the Broad Street Run on May 1. As well, Sharon will be sporting the same cap Tug wore from 1965 through 1974 and her Faith and Fear wristband, which makes us a little extra proud. Read more about the great work of the Tug McGraw Foundation here and donate whatever you can, if you can, here.

In the meantime, we wish Sharon the luck of the Irish and everybody else this weekend in the New York City Half Marathon.
