Twitter Tuesday: Craig Breslow

Late Monday night, Oakland reliever Craig Breslow tweeted the following:

1,974 followers....who will be #2,000?!

And since I already follow the lefty...you should too.

Why? Because "why not?"...that's why!

In all seriousness, the former All-Ivy League hurler is the kind of player who is using what he's achieved on the field to hope those off of it thanks to his Strike 3 Foundation.

The Strike 3 Foundation (founded in 2008) is a charitable agency that heightens awareness, mobilizes support, and raises funding for childhood cancer research. Breslow's sister was diagnosed with thyroid cancer at the age of 14. Now, more than fifteen years later, she lives an unrestricted life as a cancer survivor.

So, hey, follow the big leaguer on Twitter and become Number 2000. Then...go nuts and follow the Strike 3 Foundation.
