The Most Valuable Philanthropist award recognizes a Player whose efforts have made a positive impact in the causes and communities personal to him. The MVP award is offered three times over the course of the regular season, celebrating the individual Player who demonstrates an altruistic spirit and positive social impact beyond the diamond.

 

The winner of this award will receive a grant in his name to the charity of his choice, as well as automatic consideration for the Philanthropist of the Year Award which is given at the end of the year.

In recognition of Trevino’s tireless charitable work, the Players Trust will award a $5,000 grant in his honor to Special Hearts in the Arts, a nonprofit organization that offers arts programs in music, theater, film and other fields for individuals with special needs in Corpus Christi, Texas.

 

“I have known Jose since he was a student in my class, and for years have been blessed to witness his endless generosity and concern for others” said Special Hearts founder Sherri Davis. “Jose always makes time to visit with our performers when he is home in Corpus Christi, and has been a longtime supporter of our work. We are so proud of his success and grateful for his donation to help grow our organization.”

 

Trevino, 31, attended St. John Paul II High School in Corpus Christi before moving on to Oral Roberts University and a career in professional baseball.

 

“Since she was my teacher back in high school, Ms. Davis has instilled in me a passion for helping others, and the lessons I’ve learned from her have had an enormous impact on my life to this day,” Trevino said. “I’m so glad I have the opportunity to pay it forward and give back by supporting Special Hearts, helping special needs students in Corpus Christi explore music, theater, art and more.”
