Like many kids in Venezuela, Lemuel dreamed of playing professional baseball. His first contact with FCA was as a participant in a special baseball camp held in Valle de La Pascua, VZ in 2016. At the time, he struggled to trust people after his biological father and two step fathers all left his mother and sisters. After the camp, Lemuel began attending FCA’s baseball academy/school. He was given a uniform and glove donated by PIFBS. Through participating in the program he grew tremendously and became a leader, even helping coach the younger boys at the school.
