The Dominican Republic faces a variety of crime-related challenges such as gang activity, high murder rates, drug trafficking, and robbery. By supporting these scholarships, running baseball tryouts, and touring US college coaches in the Dominican Republic we hope to offer viable opportunities to at-risk youths.
The little we are able to help can be enough to raise a few scholarships. Some players that already received scholarship in previous years are almost graduating. There’s no better satisfaction for us than knowing where they came from and seeing them now.
The sad part is that many families of these athletes are so poor that they can’t afford in some cases $200 dollars a month for a shared apartment during college, in other cases, they can’t afford the flight and food expenses.
Some scholarships are full-tuition but required room and board, and other scholarships are 80% and the family can’t get the extra money due. That is why it’s our duty to help as much as we can.
