Kerry Wood still has his fastball when it comes to making pitch for charity
When popular athletes retire, charity work can become a double-edged sword. On one hand, they have more time to dedicate to their cause that they didn't have when they were playing games and training. On the other, they may not have the same star power they had during their playing days now that they're out of the limelight and also no longer have the same relationships with the players and media they depend on to attend their charity events.
