RBI Winner

This month’s honoree is Mario Hunter. Mario is a 3.25 GPA student athlete in the 8th grade at Kathryn T. Daniels University Preparatory Academy.  He started playing baseball 4 years ago in a local Little League, but had a small setback because he was hanging out with the wrong crowd. Last fall, he signed up with the Jr. RBI Fall Ball Program and then went on to make tremendous strides. He has shown great skill development which has allowed him to be added to the RBI 15-under tournament team.

Mario and his teammates will represent Milwaukee as they play host to the RBI Central Regional Tournament in late July.

Congratulations, Mario, keep up the great work!
