Professional career

In 1995, Baltazar and his wife had a son who developed a strange blood disease. Two years later, the disease was diagnosed and Baltazar and his family started travelling constantly to Rochester, Minnesota for treatment. In between, Baltazar organized a foundation that helps grow funds for kids with that disease. After constant improvement and fall backs, Baltazar's son died in 2001, at the age of 6. In memory of his son, Baltazar has kept the foundation on working, and he and his helpers organize charity boxing undercards, rodeos and auctions every year.

In 2001, the auction charity was attended by Alice Cooper, former world boxing champion Michael Carbajal, daredevil Spanky Spangler and others. The Baltazar brothers Frankie, Tony and Bobby were trained and managed by their father, Frank Baltazar Sr.
