Finally tonight here, America Strong.
The devoted mom, the determined boy
and the coach who heard them.
Danny was born without
a fully functioning heart.
That backpack he carries delivers
to keep his heart going.
But knowing Little League season
his mother Rebekah was determined
to get him onto the field.
I'd ask some friends on the Facebook,
“Hey, does anybody have some baseball
uniform that you don't use any more?”
And that is what started this.
They had more than uniforms.
One Little League coach
had a spot on the team.
Even if he couldn't play,
he was going to be on that team.
His response to me was,
“Coach, I've been waiting for this
my entire life.”
Finally, Danny's chance.
