and “Michael Jordan on a Chessboard” at the Diamond
|International Grand Master of Chess, Maurice Ashley attended a Richmond Braves game last week to promote chess as a learning tool to children.|
The event also served as a fundraiser for Adams Elementary School in Richmond’s East End. The school hopes to send its chess team to a summer chess camp.
Ashley threw out the first pitch, and played chess. He added to the fun when he did so …blindfolded.
