Yankees Honor Heart Transplant Recipient Colby Salerno
Yankees manager Joe Girardi talks with heart transplant recipient Colby Salerno in the dugout after presenting a team jersey to him before the Yankees played the Red Sox at Yankee Stadium Saturday. Salerno, 24, of Cheshire, received a heart transplant in May and the Yankees invited him to promote awareness for organ donation. Game attendees could register as organ donors. Salerno, who was diagnosed at age 12 with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, gained national attention for his blog "Tales From the 10th Floor" while living for six months inside a hospital waiting for a transplant.
