Welcome to Amazin’ Avenue in Conversation, a podcast from Amazin’ Avenue where we invite interesting people on the show to talk about themselves, the Mets, and more.

Gabby Vélez, head coach and founder of Reinas Baseball, began building the foundation for a girls’ baseball team in 2018. Reinas Baseball is an 18-and-under Girl’s Baseball Organization dedicated to expanding the racial, cultural, and socioeconomic diversity within the girl’s baseball community. With the assistance of Baseball for All and several new MLB initiatives, including Take the Field and MLB GRIT, Reinas Baseball is set to make its debut in 2021. Gabby joins guest host Kellyanne Healey (A Pod of Their Own) to talk about the team and their fundraising campaign to go to Baseball For All’s Nationals.
