Making a pitch for homework program

first_imgMONTEREY PARK — Danny Heran is known for pitching a baseball, but last week the Oakland Athletics player was pitching homework. “I always had to do my homework before I went out and played baseball,’ Heran told about 100 kids at the West San Gabriel Valley Boys and Girls Club in Monterey Park on Wednesday. Heran is a Monterey Park native. His grandmother lives just blocks away from the Boys and Girls Club on Ramona Avenue. As a kid, he was a regular at the club. His return was timed with a $5,000 donation presented to the club by J.C. Penney Co. Inc. The money will fund the club’s Power Hour, a homework program that rewards kids with prizes for completing homework at the club. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Heran, now 25, went to St. Stephen Martyr School on Ramona Avenue. After class, he would hang out at the Boys and Girls Club, where he would participate in different sports, like football, basketball and hockey. “I loved going to the computer room,’ Heran said. He credits the study skills he learned at the club with helping him fulfill his dream of being a professional baseball player. Heran played for Bishop Amat High School and Pepperdine University before he was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals, a team he pitched for in last season’s World Series. Now he is a starting pitcher for the Oakland A’s. “None of this would have been possible if I didn’t do my school work,’ he told the kids. His roots are still visible at the club. Heran’s name appears in several citywide championship flag football pennants hanging in the club’s gym. And his likeness is depicted in a mural painted in the gym. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! After a quick question-and-answer session with the kids, Heran spent the rest of Wednesday afternoon signing autographs. “A lot of people that have come here have made a good career,’ said Jeffrey Munoz, 15, of Alhambra. “It makes you feel like whatever your dream is you can achieve.’ Many of the kids are also fans of the club’s Power Hour program. “It kind of motivates us to do homework,’ said Rochelle Ruiz, 13, of Monterey Park. When kids enroll in the program, they sign a contract with the club. The agreement is that the kids will always do their homework at the club in exchange for points that can later be traded in for prizes, like CDs or video games, said Frank Reyes, program director at the club. For No. 24 of the A’s, homework made the difference. “It all starts now and doing your homework now,’ Heran told the kids. “So, you need to do your work now so you can reach your dreams later.’ Jason Kosareff can be reached at (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2717, or by e-mail at [email protected] last_img read more
