Buster Posey and Dick Vitale might be a study in contrasting demeanors, but they have come together for a cause.
The Giants catcher and his wife, Kristen, pledged this season to raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer research. Wednesday, they are hosting a fundraiser at AT&T Park to benefit the V Foundation with the help of Vitale, the longtime ESPN basketball analyst and an ardent supporter of the cause.
The Poseys and Vitale visited the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital on Tuesday, meeting with patients and their families.
The Giants will also honor pediatric cancer patients and their families before Saturday afternoon’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals.
