Bring you glove for some baseball on the field at PNC Park.

The annual Catch for Cancer event is from 8:30 a.m. to noon on June 1. The Pittsburgh Pirates and Allegheny Health Network will host a baseball skills workshop with the opportunity to meet Pirates pitcher Jameson Taillon and first baseman Josh Bell.

There will be five stations – playing catch, catching pop-ups, fielding ground balls, throwing(complete with radar velocity) and batting practice.

The first 200 people to donate $100 will also receive two tickets to watch the Pirates take on the Milwaukee Brewers at 4:05 p.m. that day.

There will be a question and answer session in the PNC Park stands with some Pittsburgh Pirates, including Taillon and Bell at 11:30 a.m.

Proceeds benefit patient care at AHN Cancer Institute.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
