Here at Turkey Hill Dairy, we love sports and we love ice cream. That’s one reason why we’re so proud to be the official ice cream of the New York Yankees. It’s also why we love stories like this one:
Nick D’Annibale is a 13-year-old Yankees fan who was diagnosed with leukemia in 2011. He’s recovering, but it hasn’t been easy. To help make things a little easier for Nick, the folks over at MLB Fan Cave invited him to take a tour of the MLB studios followed by a game of whiffle ball in the streets of New York.
In the middle of the whiffle ball match, an ice cream truck arrived. Whiffle ball AND ice cream? Could Nick’s day get any better? It just might…
The door of the ice cream truck opened and the ice cream man was … New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano!
Nick had a great time hanging out with his favorite Yankee. The pair played catch, hit a few whiffle balls and had some ice cream (of course!). Feel free to check out a video of Nick’s awesome day on the MLB Fan Cave website. After you watch it, you’ll know why we love baseball, ice cream, and the New York Yankees!
