Michael Young has prided himself in being active in the Dallas-Fort Worth community throughout his tenure with the Rangers. He, along with his wife Cristina Barbosa, have supported several charities, most notably the Wipe Out Kids' Cancer Ambassadors program.

But the Youngs felt it was time to take the next step.

So they launched their own charity, the Michael Young Family Foundation. The nonprofit organization will focus on improving children's health, whether it's physical, social, mental or educational.
