ST. LOUIS, MO. (KTVI) – A special pitcher was on the mound Tuesday night at Busch. Maggie Bohannan threw out the first pitch.  She is recovering from T-cell leukemia and has been a big part of the homers for health program with Matt Holliday and David Freese.

Holliday has been nominated for the Herschel Clemente award for his work with the program and his work in the community.

The Homers For Health program collects money for SSM's Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center with every home run hit by the Cardinals.

The program’s goal is $3,000 for each home run; they’re only $66 short as of right now.

Fox 2 is a proud sponsor of the program.
