Harlem RBI




Created in 1991, Harlem RBI is a youth-development program designed to encourage education and literacy through baseball--providing an opportunity for Harlem kids to partake in America's game. To do this, they've enlisted help from NY Mets Center Fielder Carlos Beltran, who has pledged to donate $500 for each run he drives in this year. Now, there are many players in various professional sports who are similarly generous. In this case, The Mets Foundation matches each of his $500 donations. Additionally, you can visit their site and pledge your own donation for each of Beltran's RBIs this season.
