Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos has been named the 2016 Jim Sundberg Community Achievement Award winner, which honors a player’s public service in the area.

Chirinos will receive the award at Friday’s Dr Pepper Texas Rangers Awards Dinner at Gilley’s Dallas. A limited number of tickets remain at www.texasrangers.com/awards. Proceeds benefit the Rangers Baseball Foundation.

Chirinos created the Robinson Chirinos Foundation in 2012. He’s been dedicated to helping area families in his native Venezuela and in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. He hosted his third Back2School Rally last year, donating 1,000 backpacks filled with school supplies for Fort Worth students.
