Waechter, Ferg's link to aid youth

Published February 26, 2006
With the help of Ferg's Sports Bar & Grill owner Mark Ferguson, Rays pitcher Doug Waechter has a charitable foundation and is raising money to help youth around his St. Petersburg hometown.
Ferg's formed a Doug Waechter Fan Club, with a $20 membership fee that includes a Waechter's Warrior T-shirt, autographed picture, vouchers for two upper deck tickets and a coupon for 10 chicken wings. Ferg's will also arrange "Waechterville" seating in section 303 on nights he pitches. Waechter also plans to hold occasional memorabilia auctions at Ferg's, 1320 Central Ave.
"It's for the kids," Waechter said. "All proceeds go to youth, to different things that we hear about and we can help."
