Waldvogel named White Sox Honorary Bat girl


NEW YORK -- Sherri Waldvogel was named the White Sox winner of the 2013 Honorary Bat Girl contest, recognizing baseball fans who have been affected by breast cancer and demonstrate a commitment to eradicating the disease.

Waldvogel will be honored at U.S. Cellular Field on Mother's Day this Sunday. This die-hard White Sox fan almost single-handedly spearheaded growth of the Chicago branch of the Young Survival Coalition. According to her nominating resume for the honor, she has done more on behalf of fundraising and advocacy for breast cancer research/awareness, while working and raising a family. Waldvogel also has worked with the Komen foundation, and has been a YSC peer counselor among her numerous contributions.
