How Baseball for Babies™ help preemies and their families
Angelica Sinisi Amaro, founder of Baseball for Babies™, said that there are several ways their organization helps premature babies and their families. First, their efforts help with funding research and technology. These efforts include finding new ways to detect and address issues with premature babies. Angelica gave us one example that through Baseball for Babies™ efforts, they were able to buy a $20,000 piece of medical equipment recently that helps doctors and surgeons detect previously undetectable irregularities in the hearts of babies in the womb. This technology is extremely new and not available everywhere. It is like an MRI on steroids. This is a device that combines the functions of an MRI and an ultrasound to help get a clearer picture of the baby’s heart. In addition to research and technology, Baseball for Babies™ understands that many families do not have the financial means to address the medical costs associated with a premature baby. To help these families in need, Baseball for Babies™ regularly creates fundraising opportunities to help ease these financial burdens. Baseball for Babies™ recently raised and donated $10,000 to a family to help offset their medical expenses. These are just a few examples of how Baseball for Babies™ helps save the lives of premature babies.
About Premature Babies
According to recent statistics, there are around 380,000 babies born prematurely each year in the United States. They estimate that about 1 in every 10 babies are born before 37 weeks. It is currently the number one cause of death for babies in the United States. Many of these babies that survive may also experience long term health issues including cerebral palsy, intellectual disabilities, chronic lung disease, blindness and hearing loss.
About Dosey Doe
This 165 year old historical structure has been saved for its current purpose. Originally built as a tobacco barn in Kentucky, the 300-600 year old growth oak and birch massive beams are the foundation not only for a beautiful room for also for great acoustics. It is a place where memories are made. No need to run from restaurant to music hall, as here you have it all.
Their entrees are 'cooked from scratch' based on the season, special offerings of purveyors with the type of music of the night in mind. Their task is to offer a meal that would be the reason in and of itself to visit Dosey Doe. The presentation is note worthy and the creations are featured in several Cook Books from Canada to Texas.
Nationally recognized artists from around the world dominate the calendar here: from Jerry Jeff Walker to The Rippingtons, Dave Mason to Lee Roy Parnell, Clint Black to Bela Fleck, Leon Russell to Spyro Gyra, Steve Wariner to Hayes Carll, Roger Creager to Mel Tillis, Manhattan Transfer to Gallagher... up very close and personal. Most artists will stay to have photos taken and give autographs after the show. Many very rarely do it anywhere but here and almost everyone says it is one of their favorite rooms to play.

'One of my all time top 5 places to have played,' - Marcia Ball
Come early and enjoy the room. Filled with Americana artifacts from the late 1800s to the early 1900s, there is plenty to see. Your hands touching the hand-hewn 2000 lb barn beams, your eyes filled with art, artifacts, signage from a simpler time, your taste buds excited from salad to dessert, and music so pure - up close and personal... all designed to 'Take You Away' and create a memory you will keep.
