Mike Baxter came to Dwarf Giraffe Athletic to speak to the kids of Whitestone, the neighborhood he grew up in.
Major Leaguer Mike Baxter of the NY Mets comes home to his Whitestone roots and spent some time giving back to his community for the kids at Dwarf Giraffe Athletic League in Whitestone.
Mike emphasized the importance of education as he shared his journey up to the big leagues to the local ball players. Mike also spent time on some hitting tips to our young children. His message was work hard, study and good things will happen! We all wish him the best in his future in the Major Leagues!
