Former Oriole to sign autographs Sept. 25 at The Jefferson SchoolFundraiser will support work on school's nature trail
Former Baltimore Orioles center fielder Brady Anderson will visit Georgetown in support of The Jefferson School from 4:30 to 6 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 25, at The Jefferson School, 22051 Wilson Road. Community members should bring their own items for Anderson to sign.
A donation of $20 per signed item is requested, with proceeds being used to promote fitness and healthy lifestyles for children through the renovation and expansion of The Jefferson School’s outdoor nature trail. The event is supported by Professional Physical Therapy & Sports Care.
“We are excited to have Brady Anderson coming to our school in support of fitness and healthy lifestyles of our children,” said Connie Hendricks, head of The Jefferson School. “Enhancing our .75-mile nature trail will enable our children to expand their adventures even farther along the school’s 43 wooded acres.”
Anderson is a former outfielder with the Baltimore Orioles, Boston Red Sox and Cleveland Indians of Major League Baseball. As a member of the Orioles, Anderson hit 50 record-setting home runs for the team. Another baseball great, Cal Ripken Jr., referred to him as “the greatest leadoff hitter in Orioles baseball, and the best athlete I have ever played with.” Anderson is currently the vice president of baseball operations for the Orioles.
The Jefferson School, a nonsectarian, independent day school, is located on 43 wooded acres in Georgetown and strives to provide innovative academic programs that foster an enthusiasm for learning. To learn more, contact Hendricks at 302-856-3300 or go to www.jeffersonschool.com.
