RBI Athlete of the Month: Tyrese Mitchell
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 Tyrese “Bubba” Mitchell.
Tyrese is a junior at Riverside University High School. As a catcher on the RBI Select League and Travel Team, Bubba is not just a great player, he’s also a good student. He maintains over a 3.0 GPA. He is a very dedicated player and a team leader who helps when anything is needed on or off the field. Bubba continues to grow as a young man and as a baseball player. Keep up the good work Bubba!
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 $40,000 last season, so keep tweeting to help us support our local program again in 2015! View the current standings at mlb.com/whiff.
