|New York Yankees' Hope Week|
Tuesday's Children's Mentoring Program had the opportunity to meet and spend time with Yankees players on July 26th, 2011. As part of Hope Week 2011, Tuesday's Children was one of the charities chosen out of thousands to be recognized and treated to a day like no other. The day highlighted the Mentoring Program with special recognition to Keith Pryde, Mentor of the Year 2011. Keith and Robert have been matched since 2008 and together they threw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium! The day included a water fight at the South Street Seaport Beach over lunch, a water taxi ride, tours of the stadium, time on the field for batting practice and watching the Yankees beat the Mariners!
