Delvan was invited to compete on the So Cal National Travel Team out of June Lake, Ca. He will be at the USA Baseball 14U National Team Championships in Jupiter, Florida on June 19-21.

He will be coached and chaperoned by the So Cal National Travel Team coaches, staff, families and teammates.

My eldest sister, Leilani Gomez, will be flying out with him on June 18th immediately following his 8th grade promotion.  Accompanying them for the next four days will be Lil Richie, Delvans cousin.

He has a 6 tournament schedule, with each tourney lasting 4-6 days each. 

He will be carpooling with his coaches and teammates from Jupiter, FL to Marrietta, Georgia where he will be playing in the Perfect Game 15U World Wood Bat Championships.

He has a tournament every week for about six weeks straight and he finishes n San Diego at the 14U USABF World Series August 2nd thru 9th.

I will have more info posted soon.  I just wanted to reach out to as many people as possible to ask for your support to help Delvan become his dream and to one day play in the Big Leagues.

He has a huge opportunity to showcase his skilset, character, and vision.  He loves baseball.  The kids good and we are asking for everyone to support us as best they can.  

We have to pay for lodging which for Delvan alone is already 2K over 45 days, roughly.  Each tournament has an entry fee of $250-355 per player.  After cost for food, uniforms, gas, rental, etc.  I was also invited to help our Varsity Coach Brooks Wallng (18U Scouting Director for So Cal National Travel Team) to coach the 15U Team at the Perfect Game tourneys the last two weeks of July.  I will be taking vacation days to be with Delvan and Brooks and flying back with them as well.

This is going to be life-changing for all of us.  Everyone who has helped us on our way has a piece of Delvan in them too:  The courage to rise to the challenge...  The awareness to know the situation and respond correctly...

I am asking for everyone to help donate money towards giving Delvan his jumpstart to his path toward his dream.  Unfortunately, Jen and I can't afford to do this on our own, financially.  Rather than be the roadblock for Delvans growth and success, I realize that I need to ask for all your help instead.

Something else we realized is that this will be a given every year moving forward:  Delvan will be competing at the highest levels of amateur baseball and getting the exposure, training and experience necessary to one day fulfill that dream.

Thank you all for whatever amount you are able to help us raise funds to make this happen.  My youngest sister, Emily Gomez and her boyfriend Michael have stepped up by offering a credit card to make all the purchases for flights, lodgings and any other gear or necessities.  They have also donated the cost of Delvan's one way ticket from LAX to Florida.  They are depositing him weekly spending money into his checking account for food.  On top of all this, they are giving him toward any miscellaneous expenses he may encounter.

My Mom has said that she would help to pay for my flight to Georgia for the last two weeks of July.

In a nutshell this is where we are at.  Call me or email me directly as I'm trying to set this up.  gomez.elm@gmail.com 562-376-7350

Thank you for everything!

Love,

Elmer, Jen, Erik, Delvan, Jeremy and Ryoko Gomez
