Katie Couric, Terrence Howard, Minka Kelly & John Kruk “Stand Up” For Mastercard “Priceless” Spot

November 6, 2009 – Major League Baseball, MasterCard Worldwide and Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) joined together for a historic in-stadium and televised event which occurred during Game Three of the 2009 World Series on Saturday, October 31, and incorporated the live crowd inside Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia into a “Priceless” public awareness spot produced by Stand Up To Cancer Founding Member Laura Ziskin. The spot aired between the start of the second inning and was broadcast live on FOX as well as inside the stadium. Near the conclusion of the 30-second spot – which celebrates the powerful emotions baseball creates – the action turned live to the ballpark, where CBS News anchor Katie Couric, Former Phillies first baseman (and cancer survivor) actors Terrence Howard and Minka Kelly (both of whom lost their mothers to cancer) encouraged the rest of the crowd and the viewing audience to “stand up” to cancer.
