MAN OF THE YEAR

CURTIS GRANDERSON

Granderson, a three-time All-Star who has consistently combined speed, power and defensive skill over 16 seasons with seven clubs, leads in the clubhouse and the community with a warm, engaging demeanor. His hard work, commitment and goodwill also set a positive tone for his teammates and in the many lives he touches through his Grand Kids Foundation.

Over the past decade, Granderson’s Grand Kids Foundation has introduced baseball to more than a million kids in underserved communities, supplied 17.5 million meals to families in need, brought fitness activities to dozens of cities and developed a multi-million-dollar, state-of-the-art sports complex in his hometown of Chicago that serves over 10,000 kids annually.

Through the Players Trust, Granderson will receive a $50,000 grant to direct to charities of his choice.
