NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. (September 2019): Nicholas loves baseball and his favorite team is the New York Yankees. He always wanted to take his younger brothers to a Yankees game. Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, made his dream come true purchasing him a Bomber Bucks gift card that he could use to purchase tickets to any regular season home game. Yankee Stadium also provided tickets for Nicholas and his family to attend the New York Yankees game against the Los Angeles Angels. Before the big game, Nicholas got to take a tour of Yankee Stadium.
“We’re so glad Nicholas was able to experience these meaningful moments with his family,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai.
The tour made him feel like a VIP and he liked seeing the locker rooms and the dugout to get a feel for what it was like to be on the Yankees home field. After the tour, he watched the Yankees batting practice and even caught a few fly balls. Nicholas and his family then went on to tour the Yankee Museum and Monument Park which they had entirely to themselves. Right before the big game, Nicholas and his family watched the Yankees warm up and were so close they could talk to the players. It was an amazing experience and ended with a big win for the Yankees. Nicholas can’t wait to take his brothers to more Yankees games with his Bomber Bucks gift card.
