J.H. entered the dependency system in 2011 and was considered a high risk. That changed when his foster dad encouraged him to try out for baseball. At tryouts, J.H. cracked the ball out of the park three times! This was the turning point for J.H. For the first time in his life, J.H. felt, “Somebody wants me for me.” This young man had struggled with self-esteem and maintaining a positive attitude. It all turned around with his involvement in baseball, a game keeps him in check, continually motivates him, and helps him set his sights on a positive future. This year he turned 12 and asked for a birthday party with a Tampa Bay Rays theme. FRIENDS assisted in purchasing front row tickets for him to attend a baseball game between the Rays and the Houston Astros. As a surprise, his Guardian ad Litem arranged for him to meet the Tampa Bay Rays team members. The day was made complete when the Jumbo Tron wished him a Happy Birthday and J.H. accompanied the home team to exchange the lineup cards with the Houston Manager.
