Felo.

 

I sent this email out to you guys 170 days ago, not long after Jurickson Profar had walked into the theater space at Globe Life Park to talk to us at Newberg Report Night about the scout who had treated him like family, and signed him to play professional baseball with the Texas Rangers:

 

========================================

As you know, we raised roughly $23,000 at Newberg Report Night three weeks ago, and it was split between Jose Luis Felomina, a Rangers scout in Curacao who is battling terminal cancer, and the Assist the Officer Foundation, which supports the families of fallen officers from the Dallas Police Department.

Felo sent this email, and I told him I would pass it along:

Curacao, September 5th, 2016

Dear Mr. Newberg,

I would like to extend my utmost gratitude to you and your organization for the generous donation to support me and my family in this battle. There are no words to express what this donation means to us. You can be sure that my family will make good use of this generous donation. Once again, thank you very much and keep up with the good work.

Sincerely,

Jose Luis Felomina

========================================

 

Jose passed away today, in Curacao, survived by his wife and three children.

He was 50.

And he was a beloved baseball man.
