THE ROYAL TREATMENT

A visit from His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales to the Field of Dreams in the spring of 2013 had all of New York City buzzing. Harlem RBI senior Jasmine couldn't believe she was meeting royalty: "I was ecstatic, but I tried to keep my cool." Recognizing Harlem RBI's unwavering commitment to youth, The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry initiated a partnership with Harlem RBI. The American Friends of The Royal Foundation launched Project Coach, which provides coaching opportunities for youth from age 13 through college graduation. Jasmine was immensely proud to demonstrate her skills when she got to coach His Royal Highness on baseball fundamentals. Prince Harry proved to be a quick study—with New York Yankee and Harlem RBI Board Member Mark Teixeira on the pitching mound, Prince Harry knocked the cover off the ball.
