Johnny Damon is the latest former athlete to accept the Ice Bucket Challenge, keeping it simple and straight to the point.
Damon, who helped the Boston Red Sox win the World Series in 2004, doused himself in ice-cold water to show his support for ALS awareness.
Damon nominated three people, including Charlie Moore, to take the challenge next. What the former center fielder might not know, however, is that Moore already completed the challenge. This seems to be a first in the viral effort, so does Moore have to do it again?
Damon, 40, told The Associated Press in early July that he was eyeing a return to baseball and believed he could outhit “half of the league.” He hasn’t signed with a team yet, but he’s still finding productive ways to fill his time, as evident in this video.
The Ice Bucket Challenge was created by former Boston College baseball players Pete Frates and Pat Quinn, who are battling ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease). Boston College football coach Steve Addazio participated in the challenge after practice Thursday afternoon, and many Boston sports figures also have committed to the effort.
