Durham Bulls Montoyo Family Fund Accepting Donations Through Valentine’s Day
Durham Bulls Manager Charlie Montoyo recently spoke to the fan about his life in the hospital with his infant son, Alexander.
Bulls Manager Charlie Montoyo recently spoke to 99.9 The Fan’s Mike Maniscalco and Dan Mason on their morning showing, The Fanatics. Montoyo spoke to the pair from UCLA Medical Center where he is constantly by the side of his infant son. Alexander Montoyo was born on October 17th with Ebsteins Anomaly, a heart defect in which the tricuspid valve is abnormally formed. He has not yet left the hospital.
Montoyo says he has received many emails of support from his players and even an umpire. He also says the Tampa Bay baseball organization and the crew in Durham have been incredibly supportive.
The Durham Bulls activated the Montoyo Family Fund to help Montoyo with the mounting medical bills.
“Charlie and his family are going through an unimaginable experience as they watch Alexander fight for his life every day,” Durham Bulls General Manager Mike Birling said. “I know the Durham Bulls extended family will help us alleviate some of the financial pressure Alexander’s treatment is requiring.”
On Tuesday, January 22nd, the Raleigh Hot Stove League Charity Auction raised just over $1,500 for the Montoyo Family Fund.
The Bulls will match up to $10,000 in the Montoyo Family Fund, which is open from now until February 14th. To donate, go to www.durhambulls.com and click on the Montoyo Family Fund link or call 919-687-6555.
