Andrew: I wish to be a member of the Colorado Rockies

Andrew: I wish to be a Colorado Rockie

“ Andrew looks good in purple ”

Andrew is a big baseball fan, but he never thought he'd get to play alongside his favorite players.

  • Andrew gets a few tips from his favorite player, Todd Helton.

  • Andrew hangs out with a few of the Colorado Rockies.

  • Andrew and his dad take in the view from the dugout.

  • Todd Helton helps Andrew round the bases.

  • Andrew making his way across the bases on his own.

  • Andrew crosses home plate after hitting a home-run!

  • Andrew watches from the stands during the game.

  • After just one day as a Colorado Rocky, Andrew already has a fan base!

Eleven year old Andrew grew up in Gillette and has always had a passion for sports.  Andrew was diagnosed with End Stage Renal Disease and had to undergo daily dialysis treatments.  Baseball is his favorite sport, but he doesn't just root for any team - he is a Colorado Rockies fan.  His favorite player is Todd Helton, and Andy practices hitting just like Todd every chance he gets.  It came as no surprise that Andrew's wish would be to be a member of the Colorado Rockies.  It was a day he'd never forget.  ESPN sponsored Andrew's wish and featured a segment in the "My Wish" series!
