Gardner to meet with his biggest fan

You may recall that Brett Gardner was visiting a hospital the morning of May 15 when a heart patient named Alyssa gave him a bracelet, letting him he would hit a home run if he held onto it.

Sure enough, Gardner had an inside-the-park homer that night. Alyssa had a heart transplant the next day.

Alyssa is doing well. Now New York-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital will reunite Gardner and his biggest fan tomorrow afternoon before the Yankees play the Mets. The meeting will take place at the hospital.
