All the money raised during the event will help cover Adams’ expenses, including physical therapy equipment and adjustments that need to be made to his home. 

During the event, there will be chances to win autographed jerseys, balls and many more items.

Anyone who can’t attend the event but wants to donate can send a check directly to John Adams at O’Neil Healthcare Fairview Park. 

The Cleveland baseball icon has not attended a baseball game since 2019 due to ongoing health issues. Earlier this year, Adams sat down with 3News’ Nick Camino for an exclusive interview where he discussed some of the setbacks he has been facing.
