Don Hooton to Throw Out Ceremonial First Pitch Tonight at Yankee Stadium; Taylor Hooton Foundation to Receive $10,000 Donation from Yankee Foundation

New York Yankees, August 11, 2009 – The New York Yankees today announced that Don Hooton, father of Taylor Hooton and president of the Taylor Hooton Foundation, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to the start of the Yankees’ 7:05 p.m. game vs. the Toronto Blue Jays tonight. Additionally, he will be presented with a $10,000 donation from the Yankee Foundation toward his work.

Don Hooton, along with members of his family, formed the Taylor Hooton Foundation in February 2004, just seven months after the tragic loss of his son, Taylor, who committed suicide following the use of anabolic steroids. The Yankees will honor Taylor and the foundation during pregame ceremonies.
