American Heart Association

At 23, Sandoval used jokes about his weight as a catalyst for teaming with the American Heart Association encouraging kids to stay healthy. He spoke in his native language to elementary-school-aged kids at San Francisco’s predominantly Hispanic Mission Cultural Center in the summer of 2010. This past season, after losing 40 pounds, Sandoval made a similar appearance with his brother and training partner Michael at St. Peter School. The visit was much to the delight of Vice Principal Mercy Sister Marian Rose Power. “In today’s world, our children need heroes and heroines to look [to] for inspiration,” she told Catholic-SF.org. “Pablo and his brother did this for the children and families at St. Peter’s. The teachers will follow up with lessons on nutrition and exercise so it will be far more than a one-day event.”

STAND UP TO CANCER

When Pablo played for the Class-A San Jose Giants, he lived with his host family, Donna and Ed Musgrave, growing close to them as they helped him adapt to a new country, culture, and language. Donna’s subsequent battle with bladder cancer galvanized Sandoval to do what he could to stand up for her and to stand up to cancer. In October of 2010, Sandoval joined fellow World Series players in signing The Wall for “Stand Up To Cancer,” naming his baseball mom, Donna. “It’s exciting to know that MLB does those things to help others,” he told MLB.com. “We need to give support to make good things happen.” In 2013, an MLB public service announcement, which aired during the World Series, featured Sandoval and Dustin Pedroia introducing “Stand Up to Cancer’s” new app. During the spot, Sandoval held up his phone displaying the app saying, “My Friend Donna.”

Child Safety

In 2011, the FBI honored Sandoval for partnering with the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) and the FBI National ID Program to provide 50,000 Child ID fingerprinting kits to children in the San Francisco community. “Pablo is a professional athlete who understands the importance of investing back in the community that supports you, and 50,000 children in San Francisco will be safer due to his efforts,” said Kenny Hansmire, the AFCA/FBI National Child ID Program executive director. Sandoval also furnished kits for families in Venezuela.
