Tour for the Cure Stops in Delmarva and Bowie

As O's struggle, it helps to look at the big picture

By Matthew Taylor

Raising money for a good cause by traveling to ballparks? Where do I sign up?

The second annual "
Tour for the Cure" visited some O's affiliates this week, taking in games at Delmarva and Bowie on Days 135 and 136 of the summertime adventure. Here's hoping Tim Riley, the director of the 2007 Tour, had as good a visit to the Baysox game as my wife and I did last week.

According to its website: "The Tour for the Cure is the ultimate baseball road trip - a unique venture to raise funds for cancer research. In collaboration with the
Jimmy Fund and the world-renowned Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, the Tour will visit 180 major & minor league baseball stadiums across the United States. It combines the great American pastime with this vital cause."

The Tour for the Cure comes to Camden Yards on Sept. 6.
