Play Ball!

What could be better than Opening Day at the “K” (Kauffman Stadium), on a beautiful sunny day, with the World Champion Royals off to a great home start versus their 2015 World Series opponent Mets.) To top it off, fourteen members of our family, known as the Wolff Pack (clever huh?), participated in the “Relay the Way” to raise money for the Urban Youth Academy. We tossed the ball from one to another in twenty foot increments for over nine miles, reportedly raising over $100,000 for the cause. Over 2500 folks lined the streets from Union Station to the “K” to wait for their moment in the spotlight. Everyone had a good time and given that it was the first time it had ever been done, it was very well organized. Thanks especially the Kansas City Police Department for making the street a safe place to stand while on that long blue line.

 In what can only be described as a very poor and self-promotional segue way, the MDA Focus Magazine published an article I wrote in the current issue titled: “It’s a Whole New Ballgame”. While there is not a single baseball statistic in the text, I hope it will provide some insight about our Baby Boomer Sellers trying to do business with Millennial Buyers.
