Kluber’s Kids A Home Party: Adrian August 18th, 2020 Dallas, Texas
On select home games throughout the season, Corey and Amanda usually host a child from DFW-area children’s hospitals at Globe Life Field for a dream day at the ballpark. As part of this longstanding program, the child and his or her family and friends will meet Corey and Amanda, watch batting practice on the field, shop at the team shop, enjoy a classic ballpark dinner and stay for the game.

However, this year’s program looks a little bit different due to the MLB’s coronavirus rules. Corey and Amanda have elected to host Kluber’s Kids At-Home Parties instead. The Kluber’s first at-home participant was Adrian, who enjoyed the program on Tuesday afternoon!

Adrian, a Ft. Worth resident, is very thankful to be the first Kluber’s Kid this season.  Adrian is a huge Rangers fan and enjoys playing baseball, too. He is an outstanding 2nd Baseman. He is 11 and has battled kidney disease from the age of 3. He had a full kidney replacement at age 10. The donor? His very own brother!

He was only back in school about 60 days this year before the COVID quarantine shut the school down. He will continue with online classes this fall. On August 18th, Adrian had his first day back to school and wasn’t too thrilled with that virtual experience. However, on that same day, the Kluber Family Foundation was able to celebrate Adrian’s strength!

Adrian and his family received an at-home baseball-themed watch party to enjoy the Rangers vs. Padres game on Tuesday afternoon. The watch party was catered by Pluckers Wing Bar and came complete with a #28 Kluber jersey and a special video message from Corey and Amanda themselves.

In addition, Adrian and his family also received Kluber’s Kids t-shirts, Rangers hats, cardboard cutouts at the Globe Life Field, and vouchers for tickets to a Rangers game next season. To top it off, Adrian and his family were highlighted as part of the Rangers broadcast during the game.

This special experience brought smiles to the faces of Adrian and his family during what has been a challenging year. The Kluber Family Foundation was honored to treat Adrian to our first Kluber’s Kids program of the 2020 MLB season! Click here to view photos from Tuesday’s Kluber’s Kids program.

Corey Kluber Hosts Final 'Kluber's Kids' Program of 2019 Season
Posted By:  Austin Alley
Wednesday, September 18, 2019

CLEVELAND (September 18, 2019) – Indians star pitcher Corey Kluber wrapped up this season’s ‘Kluber’s Kids’ program on Tuesday evening when he hosted a local family for a special day at the ballpark. Kluber welcomed Michael, a middle school student who is undergoing chemotherapy treatment at Cleveland Clinic Children’s, onto the field to hang out before the game and watch the Indians take batting practice. Michael was joined by his mother, younger brothers, and a family friend.

In addition to meeting the two-time Cy Young Award-winning pitcher, Michael and his family got to explore Progressive Field, shop at the stadium’s Team Shop and enjoy an all-you-can-eat dinner in the Club Lounge. To top it all off, everyone got to watch the Indians beat the Detroit Tigers, narrowing their deficit in the Wild Card race to just 1.5 games.

Tuesday’s program marked the tenth ‘Kluber’s Kids’ date of the 2019 season, including three total ‘Kluber’s Kids’ dates in June. The program provides a dream day at the ballpark for families with a child undergoing treatment Cleveland Clinic Children’s. The families receive Indians gear, watch batting practice from the field, receive access to the stadium’s Club Lounge for the game, and hang out with Corey and Amanda Kluber in an exclusive pre-game meet-and-greet.

Kluber’s Kids was launched several years ago, but 2019 marks the first year it was incorporated as an official program of the Kluber Family Foundation. This past year, the Foundation was able to improve the overall experience for the families by including $100 gift cards for the Team Shop for each of the participants and allowing representatives from the foundation – generally board members – to accompany the families for this special day.

Among the many highlights from this year’s ten ‘Kluber’s Kids’ dates was the June 25th program that featured Grady Schlabach and his family. Grady, an eleven-year-old suffering from cancer, got to meet Corey and Amanda and left an indelible mark on the Klubers through his courageous battle and inspiring positivity. Grady and his family were later invited to this year’s ‘Curveball for a Cause’ fundraising event, where he got to meet numerous Indians players and even went home with a game-worn Corey Kluber jersey.

The final ‘Kluber’s Kids’ program of the season came the day after the second annual ‘Curveball for a Cause,’ where more than $200,000 was raised in support of the Kluber Family Foundation and its ongoing community outreach programs that benefit children suffering from pediatric illnesses.

IMPACT

Corey and Amanda have spent time in children’s hospitals and have seen the impact that having a sick child has on the entire family. They hope to connect with these families to help make the road a little easier through their programming.

NEED

Children with serious and chronic illnesses endure constant difficulties. Limited mobility, regular hospital visits, time away from school, financial instability, and painful physical conditions all work to lessen their quality of life.

WHY?

Since breaking into the Majors in 2011 with the Cleveland Indians, Corey has become one of the league’s most involved players in the community. Corey and Amanda have spent countless hours visiting to children’s hospitals and meeting with many families who have children battling for their lives.

IMPACTING LIVES ONE
FAMILY AT A TIME.

The mission of The Kluber Family Foundation is to impact the lives of families who have seriously ill and chronically ill children, by providing them with daily support through live-improving resources and life-changing experiences.
