Friends. I wanted to thank …
Friends.

I wanted to thank you, once again, for the help and support you provided during our start up of the RBI Program in Far Rockaway and provide you with a quick update.

Your donation made an immediate impact and in just a few months, our first games were played and a community, lacking a crucial resource, has found joy on Saturdays in the park...watching and in many cases, playing baseball with their own children.

The majority of the kids that we've engaged are from low-income backgrounds and many have never even thrown a ball, own a mitt or know how to play...I've been giving my Saturdays to teaching them how to throw, catch and swing a bat and love every moment of it. I talk to each child about what school they go to and how they are doing...and I think about how much more work has to be done to build a foundation for this work so that more come and properly mentor the young people of this and other neglected communities.

As I look again at the list of our inaugural donors, I am humbled by the variety of folk and how I individually know each of you....either through childhood, high school, college...professional and personal life...and I have to say that you are all friends to not just me, but to the 120 kids that are learning to play baseball for the first time... I sincerely appreciate that you gave when we most needed it and thought you'd enjoy seeing some of the press:
