The Matt Garcia Foundation would like to shout out a Huge THANK YOU to Ronnie Siaz from Sac City Baseball. The 2nd. Annual Youth Baseball Clinic was a success!

When Matt Garcia was in sixth grade, he told his parents he wanted to be the mayor of Fairfield one day. His dream might have come true, as he was elected to the Fairfield City Council in 2007.

But on September 1, 2008, he was gunned down while standing in a driveway with a friend. The shooter claimed he thought Garcia, who was just 22 years old, was someone else, a drug dealer he wanted to settle a score with.

But Garcia’s dream lives on through the Matt Garcia Foundation. That dream was to create safe places for youth activities and to change the culture of crime and violence in the city.
