Together with MLB’s Commissioner Robert D. Manfred, Jr., the MLB Urban Youth Foundation, Alex Rodriguez, presented a check to Harlem RBI for $100,000 in 2015. The donation will be used to fund a new baseball field for Harlem RBI kids in the South Bronx, who had previously been playing on a cement field.

The check will notably provide a state-of-the-art field equipped with grass, dirt and a real pitching mound; it will ultimately deepen the organization’s impact in the community and help more young people recognize their potential and realize their dreams. By supporting Harlem’s RBI, Alex and Major League Baseball are affecting positive change far into the future and building a legacy in the heart of the Bronx.
