This is the story of our friend Jeremy Giambi who unfortunately took his life on February 9, 2022.

Jeremy was an amazing friend, mentor, uncle, son and brother, and yes he was a Major League Baseball player. For the last three years Jeremy was a hitting instructor at PFA Baseball, in Claremont, California.

He had found his niche, he enjoyed mentoring the kids he taught. He was one of the busiest coaches in the facility. But that didn’t take away from the time he spent with them. He aways had time to get into a poignant discussion over the mechanics of hitting and how that related to life.

Mental health is so fragile. It can sneak up on us or our friends quietly. It can hit so quickly and hard we may think there is no way to help.

But there is a way to help!

This is why we have established the Jeremy Giambi Fund.  Our hope is that The Jeremy Giambi Fund will make a big impact by providing assistance to athletes empowering them with the resources to achieve mental health wellness.  It will also provide support to their families and friends by teaching them to look for the signs, to know when a player is struggling within themselves.  Our goal is to provide financial help to the players and their families ensuring that cost and resources are not an obstacle to getting help.

Why this fund is important

While the potential benefits of athletic participation are numerous, sports can present various risks to the mental health of athletes and participants young and old. Some reports suggest that while sports present many opportunities for growth, the number of youth athletes with mental illnesses has been on the rise.

Here are warning signs of mental illness to watch for, especially when you have two or more of these symptoms. Long-lasting sadness or irritability, Extremely high and low moods,  Excessive fear, worry, or anxiety,  Social withdrawal,  Dramatic changes in eating or sleeping habits.

If you or someone you know is considering suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK or text “STRENGTH” to the Crisis Text Line at 741-741 or go to
