Dear Friends and Family,
Welcome to our YouCaring site. Ed Herrmann played Major league baseball for 12 seasons with 6 teams including the Chicago White Sox from 1967 – 1975. During his playing career, he posted a .240 batting average and a .987 fielding percentage. After retiring from professional baseball, Ed began coaching youth travel teams in Southern California and lead four teams of 13 and older to national titles. Ed and his family have also been involved in various charities for many years including Muscular Dystrophy Association, Wounded Warrior Fund, Christian Motorcyclists Association – Run for Son, Senior Olympics and The Greatest Save. For the last three years, the Herrmann’s led teams in the “24 Hour Relay for Life” raising thousands of dollars for the American Cancer Society.
As you may know Ed was diagnosed with Prostate cancer in 2009 and he has been battling the cancer ever since. Because of his illness and treatments Ed was forced to give up coaching his travel teams and his tutoring, which were his primary sources of income. As you can imagine, this has put a major strain on their finances. Many treatments and medications that can help Ed are not covered by insurance. We have started this site to help relieve some of the financial burden. Please remember no amount is too small when battling such a fierce disease.
You can read Ed’s whole story at Ed Herrmann’s CaringBridge.org. The donations on CaringBridge do not go to Ed, they are used to maintain the site. Visit: www.caringbridge.org/visit/edherrmann
