Even though I'm a Yankees fan (neg away), I won't claim that Pettitte or the team did anything that I hope any other MLB player or club wouldn't do for this boy. I was touched by the fact that we never know how seemingly insignificant events (daughter's academic recognition at the game) can lead to life changing experiences. As a parent, I can't believe the irony that a licensed optometrist and an emergency room doctor would have a son that was born basically blind. It's also a lesson to never pass up the opportunity to be generous to others, even if it's just with sports tickets!
I still remember having the chance to go on the field of the Yankees' then AAA club the Clippers when I was a young boy after we won our Little League title. There's just something that gets me when I see a story about a child's life being improved in any way, but especially by sports. I'm not expressing this very well, but this just really touched me. Probably nothing to see here but enjoy your day wherever it finds you.
