Working on a dream

I want to take a quick break from the momentous movements of the Indians’ offseason to help out a friend of mine.

Ramon Diaz is a former Tribe bat boy who still works in the Indians’ clubhouse during his summer breaks from Columbia University. He’s easily the most motivated, driven young man I’ve ever had the pleasure of coming across, and he’s looking for a little assistance in his latest endeavor.

Ramon is volunteering to teach English to underpriveleged children in Buenos Aires this spring. But in order to do so, he needs to raise $5,820 to cover his expenses, including flight and room and board, between now and when he leaves in March.

Through KeyBank, Ramon has set up a donation account called “The Road to Argentina.” If you’re so inclined, you can make a donation online at this address. And to learn more about the program Ramon is taking part in, you can visit this site.

Go get ’em, Ramon.

And when he returns he’ll be competing for the Tribe’s infield utility role.
