Classy move by Yankees

This is one of reasons I am a Yankees fan.

According to Peter's blog,

One of his readers, Brendan, his family organizes a yearly 3-on-3 basketball tournament in memory of their father. All proceeds are donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. They contacted all the pro sports franchises in the area, seeking tickets to raffle off. Yankees responded within an hour and donated some seats. The other teams did not step up.

“It is not so much a knock against the other franchises, but it says something impressive about the Yankees,” Brendan wrote.

In my opinion, it's good to hear any person or organization help out people or give back to society when they have that ability.
