RBI Athlete of the Month: Dylan Mercer

Reviving Baseball in the Inner Cities, or the RBI Program, is a MLB youth baseball initiative and partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs. The RBI program was developed by former scout and Major Leaguer John Young in Los Angeles in 1989 to provide youth ages 9 to 17 the opportunity to learn and enjoy the game of baseball. Each month, we honor RBI student athletes on the diamond that portray dedication to academics, community involvement, leadership, reliability and monthly performance.

This month’s honoree is Dylan Mercer.

Thanks, Dylan, for your passion for baseball!

Want to help support the RBI Program? It’s as simple as sending a tweet!

When a Brewers pitcher strikes out an opposing batter, make sure to jump on Twitter and tweet: #WHIFF  and include our handle, @Brewers.

That’s all you have to do! Each month, if we’re in the top 7 teams, we can win anywhere from $2,500 to $10,000 for our local RBI program. AND the team with the most #Whiff tweets for the season will receive an additional $20,000 donation! 

We won $7500 the first four months of the season, so keep tweeting as our chances to help the local program are looking good! View the current standings at mlb.com/whiff.
