                Corporation (RBRC) are Going to Bat for Batteries.
 
                RBRC spokesperson Richard Karn will celebrate Battery Check Day
                with a visit to the Mall of America to encourage consumers to

                Recycling Leadership Award for leading the nation in collecting
                and recycling rechargeable batteries.
 
                In addition, recycling stations will be set up throughout the
                Mall of America and outside entrances to the Metrodome so fans
                can drop-off their used rechargeable batteries.

                *    12 - 1 p.m., The Mall of America, Sears Court

                     Baltimore Orioles
 
     WHY:       RBRC is the sponsor of Battery Check Day, a national day to
                encourage people to check the batteries in their portable
                products such as cordless and cellular phones, cordless power
                tools and laptop computers and, if their rechargeable batteries
