2018 Nominee – Steven Matz
Team: NY Mets
- Steven Matz launched the TRU32 program in 2016 as a way to say thank you to the true heroes – first responders of the FDNY, NYPD and military.
- Steven is inviting 32 true heroes and a guest out to the ballpark every month throughout the season to enjoy a meet n greet with him, a meal and a Mets game. Each hero receives a TRU32 shirt, takes a photo and receives an autograph from Steven prior to the game.
- In 2018, for every strikeout Steven records, he will make a donation to Pastime for Patriots. He has invited fans to participate with him in the matching program.
