The Greater Kansas City chapter of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America has a new face as their spokesman for the region and he should become a great young role model for local kids to look up to as the Royals stock begins to rise on the national level as well as local. Eric Hosmer is not only the best young cornerstone bat for the franchise, but now he's also going to be the face of several local events and sponsorship opportunities as well. Hosmer says he's happy to help.
"Growing up in Florida I had the good fortune of having an older brother who showed me the ropes," said Hosmer. "Now that I’m older and in a position to help, I’m excited to be someone that the kids in the Kansas City area can look up to and it’s an honor for me to support such an outstanding organization."
"Having Eric’s support of the Big Brothers Big Sisters program is a huge honor," said CEO of BBBS-KC Micheal Lawrence. "Eric’s commitment to helping at-risk children succeed through mentoring friendships is a true testament to his character. Not only is Eric a talented athlete but he is an extraordinary person who is passionate about changing children’s lives. We are excited to have him on board"
