LOUISVILLE, Ky.—April 8, 2011— The Louisville Bats and Rumpke will partner this season on a
“Clean Team for Kids” to benefit Kosair Children’s Hospital through the Children’s Hospital
Rumpke will donate $100 to the Foundation for every run batted‐in by the Bats’ clean‐up hitter at
Louisville Slugger Field. Last year, the partnership raised $5,000.
The public is encouraged to join the team by texting “BALLOON” to 90999, which generates a $5
personal donation directly to Kosair Children’s Hospital.
“We are looking forward to another great season with the Bats and hope our partnership will also
generate awareness for fundraising of the Children’s Hospital,” said Rumpke Vice President Mike
Rumpke employs about 140 people in the Louisville area and provides trash, recycling and portable restroom services. Rumpke serviced Louisville Slugger Field since the stadium opened in 2000.
