Miami-Dade Commissioner Carlos Gimenez throwing the first pitch

Miami-Dade County Commissioner and former City Manager of the City of Miami, CARLOS GIMENEZ, threw out the first pitch this past Saturday, April 30th at the Grapeland Park Sports Complex. Commissioner Gimenez was instrumental as City Manager of the City of Miami in getting the bonds on the ballot, and approved by our residents, in order for us to be able to today enjoy the great recreation and sports complex at Grapeland Park. The complex includes the Water Park, Golf Course Clubhouse, Baseball Complex, and Community Center.

In addition to being a strong supporter of the Miami Youth Baseball Association, Carlos has always been an advocate of recreation and sports, and the role they play in the development of our future leaders (our youth).

The MYBA wishes Commissioner Gimenez the best in the upcoming Miami-Dade County Mayoral election on Tuesday, May 24th.
