Andrew Fletcher here from Major League Baseball. I’m reaching out to let you know that Angel Pagan was nominated as a finalist for the Roberto Clemente Award, which is given every year to a baseball player to recognize his community service efforts.
Angel participated in the Mets’ “Teammates in the Community Week,” helping residents in Spanish Harlem plant trees and flowers in a community garden alongside teammates, community leaders and Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.
We’re hoping you could ask your readers to support Angel by voting at http://www.chevy.com/Clemente, which begins today and runs until October 8. You can read his full bio at the site, as well.
A really cool aspect is that any fan who votes is automatically registered for a chance to win a trip to the 2010 World Series, where the national Clemente winner will be announced.
Hope you can use this. Please feel free to e-mail me back with any questions.
I can’t not post this in full.
