With the playoffs less than a month a way, the baseball season is heating up. If you tune in to national networks or attend a game, you're likely to bump into this commercial by Stand Up to Cancer that features celebrities Steve Carrell, Colin Hanks, and Ken Jeong, and was filmed at Fenway Park.
MLB Network, along with several other major networks, have agreed to air a one-hour special for the fundraiser on Friday. Many other big-name celebrities are also involved.
Major League Baseball and its 30 teams have donated $30 million to date for Stand Up to Cancer's new "Baseball Believes" campaign.
The promotion includes snippets of re-enactments the three celebs shot at Fenway Park of famous baseball plays, including Kirk Gibson's hobbled home run, Derek Jeter's flip-relay, and Willie Mays's over-the-shoulder catch.
