The American Red Cross held a Blood Drive at Parkview Field Monday, August 3, 2009.
The previous record for a blood drive was 283 pints collected. Â The TinCaps set out to break the record and they did, collecting 339 pints!
I arrived at 2 pm and found the waiting area full, with people still trickling in. Â The blood drive was scheduled to end at 2:30 pm. Â Great job to the American Red Cross and hats off to the TinCaps for stepping up to the plate!
Following are two interviews. Â The first is with John Lehman of the American Red Cross. Â The second is with Michael Limmer, Vice-President of the TinCaps. Â Mike and I talked about the blood drive, then switched gears and talked about the TinCaps and how their season is going. Â Enjoy!
