Kluber’s Kids A Home Party: Azer
Thursday, September 24, 2020
KLUBER'S KIDS PROGRAM CONTINUES WITH AZER'S
"KLUBER'S KIDS AT HOME PARTY"
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 second at-home participant
was Azer, who enjoyed the program on Thursday evening!
Azer, a Denton resident, was born with Cystic Fibrosis, and
he has been in and out of the hospital since he was baby. CF has brought many
challenges of its own, including having multiple surgeries, countless hospital
admissions, and many hours of respiratory treatments. Nevertheless, that
doesn't stop Azer from doing what he loves: playing baseball.
Azer is an outstanding southpaw pitcher and is passionate
about baseball. Even while he is feeling sick, he seems to always be doing
something baseball related: pitching in the backyard, asking to play catch with
someone, practicing his pitching form. He is even trying to learn to throw
right-handed. Azer aspires to be the first Major League pitcher with Cystic
Azer and his family received an at-home baseball-themed
watch party to enjoy the Rangers vs. Astros game on Thursday evening. The watch
party was catered by Abuelo's and came complete with a #28 Kluber jersey and a
special video message from Corey and Amanda themselves.
In addition, Azer 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, Azer and his family
were highlighted as part of the Rangers broadcast during the game.
