CHICAGO (CBS) — Daley Plaza echoed with the sound of church bells and baseball bats pounding dents on an old car, all for a good cause Wednesday afternoon.
WBBM Newsradio’s John Cody reports volunteers took swings at Lou Gehrig’s Disease – still incurable after more than a century – by donating money to beat up on an Oldsmobile with an aluminum bat.
“I feel awesome, I really do. This is a lot of fun,” one volunteer said. “There’s a lot bigger of a target to hit, so it’s a lot easier to put in home run power without missing.”
