Should pro athletes be required to give back?

A-Rod has blamed taking performance enhancing drugs on the "enormous pressure" of living up to the biggest baseball contract in history by the Texas Rangers. Yet while he played for the Rangers he never felt the “pressure” of that contract to give back to the Dallas/Ft. Worth community in any way whether through outreach, charitable foundational work, as a spokesperson, etc.

Since many of today’s pro athletes lack the inner motivation to get involved should that be contractually mandated in some way?
