No Days Off: Javy Báez is Helping Feed Kids in Puerto Rico

Chicago Cubs

We all know that time we are in, and we know how little we can control.

So it strikes me as important to do the good things we can, and to call out the good things when we see them:

Like so many big leaguers right now, Javy Báez wasn’t content to just take this time off and wait. He’s a doer, and he’s helping where he can:

Báez teamed up with his brother-in-law, Twins pitcher José Berríos, and Taquiza, a restaurant in Puerto Rico, to provide warm meals to over 500 children in Puerto Rico on Saturday afternoon. The duo provided bags filled with a warm meal consisting of pasta with chicken, a water bottle, a soda and juices. In addition, they provided bags that had green plantains to enjoy at home, hand sanitizers and face masks.

“Keeping (the kids) happy and on the right path is the most important thing for us,” Báez told reporters in Puerto Rico. “We will always be here for the kids.”
