      In Christina's honor, all uniformed personnel -- managers, coaches, players and umpires -- will have special commemorative patches affixed to their shirts and those attending the game will have an opportunity to purchase one of the colorful patches and in so doing contribute to a memorial fund established in Christina's name in her Arizona home town.
