Andrew signs with Colorado Rockies

“… never far from Andrew's mind is his favorite team, the Colorado Rockies ... ”

During the 10 hours he spends each day on the dialysis machine, Andrew's favorite baseball team is never far from his mind.

Andrew wished to become a player for the Colorado Rockies and after signing with the team, his favorite "slugger," Todd Helton, takes him to the plate at Coors Field to hit a few balls and round the bases.

Andrew's wish is one of the 2006 "My Wish" stories on ESPN.


He has the gentlest heart and gentlest spirit. ”

— Andrew's mother

Andrew, you just made me realize how powerful a true wish is. I have always loved stories like this but yours has done something no one else's did. As I watched this video, I cheered for you with your family. I was crying. If you ever get this, I want you to know, You inspired me.
