For MLB’s players weekend beginning Friday, Kris Bryant commissioned three Chicago artists to shine a light on spinal cord research on his custom adidas baseball cleats. The baseball spikes also express his hope that MLB players will be allowed to play for Team USA in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. As you know, baseball has been missing from the Olympics since 2008, and will be returning in 2020. But, as MLB players, they still have not been able participate.
Although he is on the DL, he will be wearing each custom cleat this weekend:
Spinal Cord Injury is near to Bryant because his friend, Cory Hahn, a former All-American high school baseball player, was paralyzed sliding into 2nd base in 2011 while a freshman at ASU.
Through charitybuzz.com/KBcleats, the three pairs of adidas Energy Boost Icon 4’s are open for bid the next two weeks to support Wings for Life, a non-profit organization that funds spinal cord research. Each pair also has a “Wings” theme, and the inside sole has a Wings for Life logo.
Check out each pair of cleats that helps support spinal cord research. Learn more at www.wingsforlife.com.
