Damn Those Yankees

make me proud.

Extra bases: John Challis visited the Yankees clubhouse before the game. He is the 18-year-old from Freedom, Pa., whose battle with terminal liver cancer has become a national story. Challis, who had a single for his high school team this spring, had wanted to meet Derek Jeter. "The kid has no fear," Girardi said. "He's an amazing boy." Challis also threw out the first pitch. "You hate to see anybody going through something like that but he had a great attitude," Jeter said. ...

I love when the Yankees use their celebrity to do good for others. It warms my heart to see good come from something sad and for someone of stature bring a smile to the face of another.
