All good things must come to an end. Sadly, the Joe DiMaggio Legends Game held in Fort Lauderdale to benefit the Children’s Hospital
that bears his name, had its 25th and final contest Saturday afternoon.
The announcement was made Friday evening by Frank Sacco, CEO of the
Memorial Healthcare System, during the player reception and charity
auction at the Signature Grand in Davie to a packed crowd of over 500
supporters. The news came as a surprise to not only the crowd, who let
out an audible sigh when they were informed, but also many of the
players who looked visibly shocked hearing it for the first time while
they were on stage.
