#Cubs Martinez hosts kids at game
Cubs bench coach Davey Martinez hosted a group of children (3rd-6th grade) at Thursday’s game from the “By The Hand Club For Kids,” a Chicago-based after-school program which helps children who live in high-risk inner-city neighborhoods. Martinez provided each child with a ticket, Cubs bucks, a Cubs hat, “Davey’s Dugout” t-shirt, and a baseball. The children were able to watch Cubs batting practice and meet Martinez. He signed autographs for the children, took pictures with them, and spoke to them about the importance of perseverance.
