Lindos Sueños translates into English as "Beautiful Dreams." The Lindos Sueños program strives to bring people of different backgrounds together through the common appeal of baseball and community service. Created in 2004, with an incredibly generous donation from a baseball-loving mom and philanthropist, Lindos Sueños has sent American teens to the Dominican Republic every year since the program's inception. Once the American teens arrive in the Dominican, they perform community service and play baseball alongside 10 teammates from across the Dominican Republic. The 20 teens serve a community in-need each morning and spend each afternoon playing baseball at the Red Sox Dominican Academy. Program sponsor, JetBlue Airways donates roundtrip flights for all 10 teens and members of the Lindos Sueños staff.

"It's hard to explain exactly in
words. You really have to
experience it for yourself.
For the kids down there,
baseball is more than a
game. It's life. It's a way
of living. In some cases it's
an escape. But it really is
something they take a lot of
pride in and that they cherish."
