Noe Ramirez: From Public Housing to the Big Leagues

25 year old Red Sox rookie Noe Ramirez and his team celebrated their win against Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday. Ramirez and his five siblings were raised by his parents in Ramona Gardens, the public housing community located in East Los Angeles.

Growing up in a tough neighborhood posed many challenges, but Noe’s passion for baseball, which he developed from his father and older brother kept him focused and determined. Living near the Dodger Stadium, Ramirez dreamed of a possibility that one day he could make it to the big leagues. Noe’s dream came true in 2015, when he debuted for Boston Red Sox on July 3.

Ramirez has many fans and strong support from the Ramona Gardens community.
