How the doc jacobs foundation came to be
The Doc Jacobs Foundation was created with a dream within a dream. Doc Jacobs was once an aspiring professional baseball player. After Doc was honorably discharged from the US Navy he was granted a tryout with a local professional team. Although Doc didn't get signed, he trained and continued to get tryouts and some looks from other professional teams. Throughout his whole time making a valiant attempt at the pros Doc came to realize how much money it costs to pursue one's dreams.
Since Doc is no longer pursuing his personal dreams of the playing professional baseball, he has decided to channel his passion and love for playing sports into affording others the opportunity to pursue their dreams.
Through donations and continued support the aforementioned opportunities can become realities.
The Doc Jacobs Foundation would like to thank all that have been supportive throughout the initiation process. We would also like to thank those that have been supportive of Doc Jacobs as he endured a lengthy path of training and trying out. Doc Jacobs would like to personally thank the teams that believed in him as he continued to impress them with his heart, talent and no-quit attitude.
