Baseball stars and ataxia supporters mingled at the second annual Diamond Awards, held on January 25, 2007. The event—which included a reception, silent auction, dinner, and awards ceremony—drew 620 attendees and raised $291,000 in net proceeds for the Bob Allison Ataxia Research Center. Recently retired Minnesota Twins pitcher Brad Radke received this year’s Bob Allison Award, given to the Twins player who exhibits the most determination, hustle, tenacity, competitive spirit, and leadership.
