About Luis Gonzalez

Luis Gonzalez, nicknamed "Gonzo", is a retired Major League Baseball outfielder. A Cuban-American, Gonzalez spent his best years with the Arizona Diamondbacks and was one of the most popular players in that organization's history. He is best known for getting the game-winning hit in Game 7 of the 2001 World Series off Mariano Rivera to give the Diamondbacks their first World Series championship. Also that year, Gonzalez astonished many when he hit 57 home runs, his personal best for one season and almost twice as many as he hit in any other season. The total is the third most in National League history for a left-handed batter. Gonzalez was selected to his second All-Star Team and finished second in the National League in hits with 198. Gonzalez also won the Home Run Derby that year.

"I cannot stress enough the importance of skateparks in high-risk areas -- they offer kids a safe place to go and something to do that gives them a sense of self-esteem they may never find anywhere else. Once communities get their first park, they almost always build more because they see the enduring positive effects they have on kids. Not to mention the parks get used from  dawn to dusk."  --Tony Hawk
