2018 HOPE Week: Day 4

Earlier today, on the fourth day of HOPE Week 2018, the Yankees honored the organization Wish of a Lifetime and 87-year-old former FDNY firefighter Sal Reale. Yankees players Greg Bird, Chad Green, Adam Warren, Tyler Austin, Chasen Shreve and Jonathan Holder surprised Sal and his family by participating in a visit to Sal's old firehouse, Ladder 136 in Elmhurst, Queens. Sal also threw out a ceremonial first pitch prior to tonight's Yankees-Rays game at Yankee Stadium and joined Manager Aaron Boone in exchanging the lineup card at home plate prior to the game.
