Home > Rob Deer Award


Opportunity4Kids would like to recognize the amazing children in our community that go above and beyond. For this reason, we have created an Award in honor of one of our Board Members, Rob Deer  who built his career in MLB but continues to inspire the community through his Children’s Baseball Camps and Clinics. At his camps, Rob recognizes three individual children- the Best Attitude, Best Hustler and Best Listener. We decided to combine these three attributes into one Award- The Rob Deer Superstar!

Are you a parent, teacher, coach or friend that knows a kid who exhibits these characteristics? Nominate a child to win our Rob Deer Superstar Award! Beginning 5/21, a weekly winner will be announced every Thursday. Each week’s winner receives an autographed copy of Rob Deer’s Sports Illustrated cover, in addition to features on our blog and social media. The contest will run for 15 weeks and at the end of the contest period, one lucky kid will be randomly selected for the Grand Prize- a day at the Ballpark with Rob Deer and the Arizona Diamondbacks!!
