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.

Prestigous Lou Gehrig Memorial Award Presented to Corey Kluber

CLEVELAND (September 18, 2019) – Prior to the Tuesday evening matchup between the Cleveland Indians and the Detroit Tigers at Progressive Field, Corey Kluber was honored on the field with this year’s Lou Gehrig Memorial Award. The award, presented by Phi Delta Theta International Fraternity and the Lou Gehrig Memorial Award Committee, recognizes a single Major League Baseball player each season who exhibits Gehrig’s prowess on the field and difference-making involvement off the field.

Corey Kluber, who becomes the first Cleveland Indian’s player to be recognized with the Lou Gehrig Memorial Award, will have his name engraved in the Lou Gehrig Award plaque at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, later this year.

Kluber’s recognition of this award comes one year after he and his wife Amanda launched their Kluber Family Foundation, which provides support to families with medically in-need children through life-improving resources and life-changing experiences. This past year, the Foundation continued its signature ‘Kluber’s Kids’ program at select Indians home games while also unveiling its first 'Kluber’s Korner' at UH Rainbow Baby & Children’s Hospital.

The Lou Gehrig Memorial Award was first presented in 1955 by Phi Delta Theta to memorialize the Yankees Hall of Famer who was an active member in the fraternity while at Columbia University. Many of baseball’s biggest names have been honored by this award over its 64-year history, including Cal Ripken, Jr., Tony Gwynn, and Derek Jeter. Cincinnati Reds first basemen Joey Votto won the most recent award in 2018. Despite winning a pair of Cy Young Awards, Kluber may ultimately be most remembered for his philanthropy and commitment to improving the lives of those in need.

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.
