“I do think sometimes as a child, as you start getting older, you start noticing the differences of what you have or what you don’t, and I think with Globe Santa, at least it helped kind of hedge that a little bit. At least it made me feel better about something.” -- Maria Marroquin, Boston Public Schools Teacher and Author of My Hair is Magic
"I couldn't help but think that in another life, one of these kids could be my own son. If it wasn't for baseball, I may have remained in the Dominican Republic and who knows where life would have taken me. It was then that I knew that I had to use the gift that I received, to play baseball, to do whatever I could to give back.” -- David Ortiz
