Pairing up the need for soccer cleats and baseball equipment with the outgrown cleats and usable equipment resulted in the creation of PlayerToPlayer-Soccer and PlayerToPlayer-Baseball, respectively. Now with the support of local teams, clubs and organizations, PlayerToPlayer-Soccer and PlayerToPlayer-Baseball continue to send hundreds of cleats and baseball equipment around the world to locations such as Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Panama, Dominican Republic, Trinidad, Argentina, and right here in the United States!
6/1/19 Joaquin and Eduardo Real named President and Vice- President.
Joaquin Real (former Vice-President of Player to Player) has been appointed President as of June 1, 2019 as Daniel Gonzalez steps down from his term as President and begins a new role with the organization as College Outreach Director. In addition, Eduardo Real will be joining the organization and assuming the role of Vice-President. Joaquin will continue broadening the reach of Player to Playerby creating a new division within the organization (Player to Player- Baseball) that will focus on the collecting and donating of baseball equipment to underserved communities with a special emphasis on Latin American and Caribbean countries. Having been born in Panama, Joaquin has already utilized his affiliations and resources to develop pathways to collect and distribute the donated sports equipment in the manner befitting the organization’s mission… from player to player.
HISTORY OF PLAYER TO PLAYER:
Founded in 2013 by Daniel and Peter Gonzalez, Player to Player has always been a vehicle in which players could help other players. Having been raised in a soccer-loving family, Daniel Gonzalez has always loved the game of soccer and knows first-hand the passion and discipline it fosters in players. This love of the sport prompted him and his brother to want to make a difference with those who are not as fortunate to have cleats and proper soccer equipment. Realizing that even small actions can have profound effects, they chose to help young soccer players in some of the poorest areas of the world and in their own community. That desire to help other players grew beyond the soccer world and has now spread to baseball. Under the direction of Joaquin Real, in 2019 Player to Player will continue to expand its reach by better assisting sports enthusiasts around the world who love soccer or baseball.
Pairing up the need for soccer cleats and baseball equipment around the world with the outgrown cleats and usable equipment of local players has now resulted in the creation of PlayerToPlayer-Soccer and PlayerToPlayer-Baseball. Now with the support of local players, teams, clubs and organizations,
PlayerToPlayer-Soccer and PlayerToPlayer-Baseball will continue to send hundreds of cleats and baseball equipment to locations such as the Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Panama, Dominican Republic, Trinidad, Argentina and right here in the United States.
