A former minor league baseball player hopes to convince Major League teams to include missing children on team photos.

Dennis Bair, who pitched in the Chicago Cubs organization before retiring because of injuries, has already convinced a number of minor league teams to include the picture of a missing child in the corner of team photographs.

Bair launched a program called "Bring Home 100," which has installed a large sign at Pittsburgh's PNC Park concourse, featuring the photos of 10 missing kids.

KDKA-TV reports the Pirates are the first professional sports franchise of any kind in America to feature his message of missing children in its ballpark.

So far six of those 100 children have returned home safely, including a girl whose photo was featured on the minor league Erie Seawolves team photo for a few seasons after being missing for 10 years.

Blair, who was 40-31 with a 4.00 ERA in eight minor league seasons, has big plans for his organization. "We're going to grow a nationwide program in every major sport in every stadium and arena in the country," he told the Pittsburgh TV station.
