Nick Castellanos is set to make a fortune after signing a five-year, $100 million contract with the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Phillies now look like a sleeper in the NL East and could easily challenge the New York Mets and Atlanta Braves for the division crown.

Castellanos will be making $20 million in each year of his contract which will expire after the 2026 season.

However, Castellanos doesn’t intend to let any of that money go to his head.

In fact, Castellanos has decided that he will donate $50K each year to a Phillies club charity, making his presence felt in the Philadelphia community and helping those in need.

Castellanos Gives Back

It’s good to see Castellanos doing something like this to help the community.

It’s always nice to see players donate their time and resources to helping those in need.

It’s extremely important to remember that baseball players, and all athletes for that matter, are human beings above all else.

He is showing that he cares about people who need assistance and has a big heart.

Players could always keep all the money to themselves, but Castellanos doesn’t intend to do that.

Instead, he wants to make a difference off the field as well as on the field.

And for him to donate $50K each year to local charities says a lot about him as a person.

Being willing to give that much to charity takes courage and heart and Castellanos has proved that he has both and wants to be more than just an All-Star baseball player who puts up MVP-caliber numbers, and it’s great to see him doing this.

He wants to have a lasting impact on the community in Philadelphia and be remembered for more than being an athlete.
