NEW YORK -- The Major League Baseball Players Trust today announced that it was selected to participate in Cantor Fitzgerald Charity Day, this coming Friday, Sept. 11. Every year, Cantor Fitzgerald and BGC Partners, in conjunction with the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund, commemorate the lives of the 658 Cantor Fitzgerald and 61 Eurobroker employees who perished on Sept. 11, 2001.
