Based on 106 strikeouts, each worth $91.93
Baseball has been so much more than a game in my life. It taught me about teamwork and persistence, and kept me focused on a bigger goal in life. In the Dominican Republic, baseball means so much to each community. It’s my hope that kids in the DR get to grow up playing baseball and have a chance to chase their dreams.
That is why I’m so excited about giving back through the game that has given so much to me, in the hopes that a generation of young people have a place to go play a game that they love, and — like me — have an opportunity to achieve great things for their own lives and help their community.
I am dedicating my 2018 performance to raising money to build a baseball field in El Cercadillo, a small town of 910 people an hour north of Santo Domingo in Monte Plata, Dominican Republic. Sponsoring this project will start by building the field and will progress until there is running water, clean water, and a farm.
Your donation means so much to me and to the kids awaiting a place to play baseball and come together as a community.
I will be personally donating $40 for every strikeout I throw this year up to $6,000 (the cost to build a baseball field in El Cercadillo), and I hope that you’ll join me by pledging along with me.
Your support really means a lot for me, and I’m excited about this season. I hope you’ll join me and my supporters as I throw strikeouts towards getting this field built!
