Home Runs For Autism

Evan Malamud is a die-hard baseball fan, softball player, and, most importantly, a father of three—including his son and sports fanatic Jaedyn, who was diagnosed with autism several years ago at the age of 2. Looking for a way to give back to the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario—where Jayden has received treatment since his diagnosis—Evan recently challenged six-time MLB all-star, former MVP, and one of his personal favourite players, Jose Canseco, to a charitable home-run derby via Twitter. Then, in a twist worthy of a Hollywood script or elementary school daydream, Canseco accepted.

The tradition will continue on June 21, when cloud-scraping softballs will be launched across Canada's capital in an effort to not only raise autism awareness, but also to raise funds for Jaedyn's hospital. This year, the event takes the format of a celebrity softball game where baseball players, including Canseco himself, square off against hockey players, including Cody Ceci, Glenn Kulka, and Clark Seymour.
