individual donors and businesses, with team captains including Phillies players
and local celebrities. For the fifth year, Ruiz will host the event, demonstrating
his strong commitment to the mission of Philadelphia Futures and the students
it serves. The Phillies’ catcher has made it his personal mission to ensure that Philadelphia’s high-achieving, low-income students are provided with the opportunities
