Moyer to be honored at Legends for Youth Dinner

Veteran pitcher will receive Brooks Robinson Community Service Award
The Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association (MLBPAA) is pleased to announce that Jamie Moyer will be honored with the Brooks Robinson Community Service Award at the 13th Annual Legends for Youth Dinner in New York City.

The event, which will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 13, at the New York Marriott Marquis, was established to recognize former Major League players for their on-field accomplishments and their off-field contributions to communities across the nation.

The Brooks Robinson Community Service Award is given annually by the MLBPAA to a current or former Major League Baseball player. The recipient's community service exemplifies the unselfish and humble attitude of Brooks Robinson, bettering the lives of the youth in his community. The award is given in honor of the dedication Brooks Robinson has shown to young people across the country through his support of the Legends for Youth Clinic series and the MLBPAA since its inception in 1982.

In 2000, Moyer and his wife Karen founded The Moyer Foundation, which supports programs that provide aid to children in distress. His foundation has made a significant impact on children in need and continues to grow with the creation and funding of Camp Erin®, a free bereavement camp for children and teens ages 6-17 who are grieving the death of someone close to them, and Camp Mariposa, a free program for 9- to 12-year-old children who are living with addiction in their family.

Moyer was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the sixth round of the 1984 First-Year Player Draft and made his Major League debut as a left-handed pitcher with the Cubs on June 16, 1986. He appeared in the 2003 All-Star Game for the American League and pitched for the World Series champion Philadelphia Phillies in 2008. He has spent his 25 Major League seasons with nine teams, and on April 17, 2012, he became the oldest Major League player in history to earn a win. To date, the only active stadium in which Moyer has not played is Target Field in Minnesota.

Rusty Staub and Dave Winfield will also be honored by the MLBPAA with Lifetime Achievement Awards.

MLBPAA allocates proceeds from the dinner to the Legends for Youth Baseball Clinic series. The Legends for Youth program is a series of free baseball clinics designed to provide children with positive role models, teach young players baseball fundamentals and promote the game of baseball.
