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.
