Meet Goose

gossage.jpgGoose Gossage, who’ll be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in July, will be at AT&T Park on Friday as part of AutoTrader.com’s “Drive to a New Start” tour to benefit the Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities program and other youth outreach programs.

Gossage will host a clinic for 20 Junior Giants players in the afternoon, then he’ll be in Willie Mays Plaza with the AutoTrader.com 2008 Chevy Tahoe, on which they’re collecting baseball celebrity signatures. Each signature means a $1,000 donation to Junior Giants, up to $75,000. The vehicle, with all the signatures collected on the tour, will later be auctioned off and the proceeds divided among RBI and youth programs in each city on the tour.

Fittingly, two of the teams for whom Gossage played are the Giants and White Sox, who meet up to begin Interleague Play on Friday night.
