Youth Baseball Programs in Central America and Caribbean:
An Investment in Our Communities

Historia

In a sea of countries known for fútbol, or soccer, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic stand apart as fans of a game that involves less kicking and just as much skill. Though relatively new to the region, today baseball is the national sport in both countries, and it is common to see children playing pick-up games outdoors, often with whatever makeshift equipment they can get their hands on.

Twelve years ago, CEMEX took on an active role in using that love of baseball to support children in the communities of San Pedro de Macorís in the Dominican Republic. “Baseball might as well be a religion in this country, it’s true,” laughs Ana María Martínez, Corporate Social Responsibility Advisor for CEMEX in the Dominican Republic. “So in 2004 we decided to collaborate with the Major League Baseball organization to bring their 'Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities' program to the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.”
