Manny Delcarmen donates $10,000 to Grew Elementary

Boston Public Schools alumnus and Hyde Park native Manny Delcarmen, relief pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, recently donated $10,000 to the Henry Grew Elementary School. The donation was generated through a fundraiser held by Mr. Delcarmen earlier this year through his “Bowlin’ Strikes for Schools” charity bowling tournament held at Ron’s Gourmet Ice Cream and Bowling in Hyde Park. The money will be used to supplement the Hyde Park school’s library and the school district’s athletics offerings. Mr. Delcarmen attended Boston Public Schools from Kindergarten all the way through graduation from West Roxbury High School in 2000. He made his major league debut in 2005.

I just have to say that I had the privledge of meeting Manny Delcarm in Florida last season. He coached my God son's little league baseball team and they won the championship. He gave up of his time during spring training to make sure that the kids received great coaching, but most importantly, a frienship. He is a great young man, with a big heart, that has realized that he is living his dreams by playing with teh Redsox and that he wants to give back to those that either look up to him or do not have anyone else to do so. Many Kudos for Manny Delcarmen, he deserves all the success that will come to his life. Well not only does he have a World Series Ring, but his kids down here in Florida also have something in common with him, a Championship of their own.
