HELP ME HIT AWAY AT POVERTY IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

There are communities very close to Villa Mella, where I grew up in the Dominican Republic, that don’t have clean water and basic necessities. They don’t have enough food or safe places for the children to play. What they do have is love; love of life; love of each other; and definitely, love of baseball!

Recently, I went back home to visit these communities and I made a promise. I made a promise to come back; a promise to do everything I can to help bring food, water, education and safe places to play to them; a promise to share their story with fellow MLB players and bring them to visit and see the love and spirit of the people. I intend to keep my promise.

Please join me in helping kids just like me by pledging for every hit I have for the remainder of the season (from May 1). The money raised from this campaign will benefit Striking Out Poverty, a program of Food for the Hungry. To go along with my #25 jersey, I will be kicking off the campaign with a $25 per hit pledge.
