In 1927, in order to stop Lefty O’Doul from tossing so many baseballs to children in the left-field bleachers, Seals owner Charlie Graham agreed to sponsor a Kids Day, where youngsters were admitted to the ballgame for free. 10,000 kids filed into Recreation Park in San Francisco that day where O’Doul helped distribute 5,000 miniature bats, thousands of bags of peanuts and a half dozen flour sacks full of baseballs. One by one, O’Doul tossed the balls from the roof of the park’s grandstand to screaming children in the crowd below. Needless to say, children loved Lefty O’Doul.

Lefty O'Doul's Kids Day at AT&T Park sponsored by the Lefty O'Douls Foundation For Kids is one of the major initiatives that this event benefits. We care deeply about the health and happiness of the many kids within our community outreach programs. Lefty's Kids Day, gives under- privileged kids around the Bay Area the chance to experience the excitement of attending a ballgame. We help them create memories that they can cherish for the rest of their lives. With your generosity, you can be part of shaping a child's mental outlook on the world and remind them someone does care about them.
