Hideki and STOPit

Hideki has supported a multitude of social action programs both during and subsequent to his career as a professional baseball player. Matsui 55 Baseball Foundation, Inc. is his primary instrument of action. As the founder/director/president of the Foundation, he actively encourages healthy lifestyles for youth through the game of baseball. Hideki joins Derek Jeter and the entire STOPit team in their efforts to save children from bullying.

"I had a wonderful career as a professional baseball player It is also true that sometimes I had a hard time and during those hard times warm voices from family, managers, coaches and fans helped me. Now it is time for me to support others who are having a hard time. STOPit can provide the means through which to help those suffering because of bullying. That's why I support STOPit. We cannot forgive bullying. Be brave and please take a stand against bullying along with me," said Hideki.
