Allstate to donate to charity for CWS opening weekend foul ball catches

NCAA partner Allstate Insurance Company has announced a program that will make catching foul balls at the TD Ameritrade Park even better this year.

Continuing their “Good Hands in the Stands” initiative from last year’s College World Series, Allstate will be hand delivering trophies to those who catch foul balls during the opening weekend games. More importantly, for each foul ball caught, Allstate will be donating $500 to Omaha’s Boys Town charity, up to $25,000.

Former all-star third baseman Aaron Boone will also be joining in the cause and delivering one “Good Hands in the Stands” recipient their trophy. Boone will also be available to take photos and sign autographs  at the Allstate Fan Zone in the CWS Fan Fest presented by Capital One on Saturday, June 13 from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.

“I’m thrilled to once again be at the College World Series with Allstate to not only reward all the great fans who are lucky enough to snag a foul ball,” Boone said “but also support the Omaha community and valuable youth sports programs like Boys Town.”

A check presentation ceremony will take place before Game 6 at the TD Ameritrade Park on June 15.

Boys Town is a nonprofit organization that has been helping at-risk youth find family, support, care and safety since 1917. They reunite families or place children in proper homes, offer skills to help children and teens rise to their potential, offer a hotline for children to talk to trained professionals about their problems and situations, and offer parenting tips.
