Mateo Watches Hardball in The Big Apple
I wish to go see the New York Yankees play
Though Mateo has never even been to New York, he is a steadfast New York Yankees fan. His one true wish was to see the play right in the Big Apple.
Mateo and his family were treated to some of the best attractions the city had to offer, including the Central Park Zoo and the Statue of Liberty. But the biggest smile on Mateo’s face came when he set foot in Yankee Stadium and was surprised with a behind-the-scenes tour and a chance to meet the Yankees and their opponents, the Toronto Blue Jays.
It was a game to remember as Ichiro Suzuki earned his 4000th career hit and the Yankees beat the Blue Jays 4-2. For Mateo, it was the experience of a lifetime!
