Carlos Martinez, Nelly, and a wonderful cause.


This past offseason Carlos Martinez has been very active in his charity organization, Tsunami Waves. The organization recently hosted a glove drive in which it collected over 1,000 gloves for children who might not have been afforded such a luxury otherwise. As someone who grew up as one of those children, the cause hits near to Carlos' heart. "The importance is not the amount of equipment needed," said Martinez. "It’s helping as many kids as possible who cannot afford the purchase. The North Coast is dear to me. My goal is not only to help underprivileged youth baseball players but I also want to support my hometown in any way possible. We have some great partners involved in this event and I’m excited to make an impact in my community." Please watch the video above where Carlos discusses his glove drive, his home town, and also some really cool highlights play with Nelly's Country Grammar playing in the background.
