In 2012, Pitch In For Baseball & Softball received a grant request from Gladys Pena, founding member of the foundation Villa Vasquez en Linea. Based in the town of Villa Vasquez in the Dominican Republic, the organization “is built to help people of low income to solve matter(s) like health issues, shoes, clothes, etc.” and to improve children’s lives. Luis, who was 10 years old at the time, was among the children who received that equipment. Luis continued playing baseball, and began earning the attention of Major League teams. On January 15, 2021, Luis officially signed a professional contract to join the Minnesota Twins organization.
