John Manuel Takes The Ice Bucket Challenge

Baseball America editor-in-chief John Manuel, not one to shy from challenges or from helping causes, accepted the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness to fight amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Manuel was challenged by Diamondbacks scout Nate Burwell, and called out’s Jim Callis, a longtime, beloved former BA staffer, as well as college baseball writer Aaron Fitt and former major league pitcher Mark Prior to take the plunge.
