Baseball is romantic and it is cruel. The Yankees have four games left to play but their season is now effectively over and the playoffs are out of reach.

The Childrens Alopecia Project, or CAP, was created in 2004 by Jeff Woytovich. His daughter Madison contracted the hair loss disease a year earlier while her mother was unbraiding her hair after a wedding.

Alopecia is an auto-immune disease that involves hair follicles being mistakenly attacked resulting in almost complete hair loss for most victims. The disease has affected approximately 4 million Americans.
