JOIN ME AS I STEAL BASES TO STRIKE OUT POVERTY IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

I played two years in the Dominican Republic and got to know the good people of the country, how personable they are, how humble and full of life. I also saw people who are suffering greatly; suffering without a roof over their head; suffering without enough to eat; suffering without safe drinking water; suffering without proper medical treatment.

That is why I did not think twice when I was asked to join Food for the Hungry Foundation’s Striking Out Poverty initiative, and why I’m storming the base paths this season to support their mission to help nine of the neediest communities in the Dominican Republic.

Please join me and take the challenge to strike out poverty by pledging for every steal I have throughout the remainder of the season. I’m personally pledging $200 per steal.
