MLB Outfielder, Yasiel Puig,
spread happiness and excitement for underserved families and children who were in the Midnight Mission Homelight Family Living program in Inglewood, CA.
Upon arrival, the families were not only anxious and excited to see Mr. Puig, but were also overtaken with gratitude. Puig took photos with the children and families, and on the behalf ofThe Yasiel Puig Wild Horse Children’s Foundation, donated a plethora of basketballs and soccer balls for positive recreational use to the Homelight family living center of Inglewood! He also brought and signed t-shirts, posters and Nike batting gloves for the guests who accompanied him during his visit.
Once the families thought the "Sunday Funday" couldn't get any better, he proposed to play a one inning game of Baseball with the children! He played as the pitcher, and the kids did an amazing job playing the one inning, ending in one of the children hitting a home run as the final batter of the game!
