Miracle Home Run

It was the bottom of the eighth, “Big Papi” David Ortiz, a veteran Red Sox player was 0-7 and lined up to bat when he wowed the crowd at Fenway Park and kept his promise to a young boy thousands of miles away in Wyoming.

Thanks to friend of CMN Hospitals and retired MLB player Kevin Millar, video messages between Maverick and Big Papi were shared – that’s when #34 promised a home run – and he kept that promise.

For Maverik, a Red Sox fan since before he could walk, Big Papi’s home run meant everything. Maverick is the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals 2014 Wyoming Champion. He has been battling a congenital heart defect and is due for another open heart surgery in the near future at Children’s Hospital Colorado. Thanks to Kevin and Big Papi for brightening his day!
