All-Star Team Roster
Strike 3 Foundation All-Stars
The Strike 3 Foundation All-Star Team is an advisory panel consisting exclusively of Major League Players who have donated their time and services to further the mission of this organization. These players have served as invaluable resources and made steadfast commitments to spreading awareness about the Strike 3 Foundation in their respective Major League cities. Strike 3 has undertaken the initiative of securing an "All-Star" on each of the 30 Major League teams by 2013, to serve as a liaison among the respective Major League Team, local children's hospitals, and this organization. Through this feat, Strike 3 can maintain a presence in every Major League city.
