Troy, NY - While the Tri-City ValleyCats were losing Wednesday for the eighth time in their last nine games, 4-3 to Vermont, the team's General Manager was doing his part in the fight against Lou Gehrig's Disease.
The ValleyCats set up a dunk tank on the concourse of Joe Bruno Stadium so that fans could take turns throwing softballs at a target, and dropping GM Rick Murphy into the water tank. In the process, money was raised to combat ALS through their unique take on the Ice Bucket Challenge that continues to sweep the nation.
