The home run power of Venezuelan Eduardo Escobar became an important contribution to the New York Mets and the NGO No Hungry Child.
Citi, a financial services multinational, agreed with the metropolitan organization to donate $2,000 for each home run hit by a baseball player at home to the aforementioned NGO, which seeks to end child hunger in the United States.
The man from La Pica, Aragua state, hit 11 home runs as a local that turned into a considerable contribution of 22,000 dollars.
Pete Alonso was the player from the Queens team who contributed the most with his power to this noble cause (US$ 34,000), after hitting 17 of his 40 homers at Citi Field.
Francisco Lindor ($24,000), Starling Marte ($20,000) and Mark Canha ($10,000) were the other players who helped with their strength.
At the end of 2021, the Venezuelan infielder signed a 2-year contract with the Mets, with a club option for 2024, and 20,000,000 dollars.
The versatile Venezuelan player became an important piece for the Mets to reach the postseason. In addition, the already veteran baseball player, 33 years old, won the love of the fans with his characteristic friendliness.
In his first campaign in “the big apple”, Eduardo Escobar left a batting average of .240, with 20 home runs, 69 RBI and 58 runs scored.
