In 2004 Founded the Chico Carrasquel Foundation
named after a former all star shortstop for
the Chicago White Sox.
Our missions are establishing baseball clinics
in the barrios throughout the Country of Venezuela
and generally to help the children of the barrios
to find a better life through sports.
We also provide financial aid to students who
otherwise would not be able to attend college.
