SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Matt Cain wants to do his part to help the next Batkid make good on a dream.
The Giants pitcher and wife, Chelsea, pledged a $50,000 matching grant and challenged to Make-A-Wish Foundation Greater Bay Area Executive Director Patricia Wilson. If Wilson can complete her goal of raising $50,000 by Wednesday night, the Cains will match it.
The couple was inspired - along with a captivated country - by 5-year-old Miles Scott's whirlwind day last month as his favorite superhero solving crime in San Francisco. The boy has undergone leukemia treatment.
Make-A-Wish says Wilson pledged to plunge into San Francisco Bay this past Saturday if supporters raised $7,500, the typical cost of a wish. She jumped into the icy water, and had raised more than $20,000 as of Monday afternoon.
