Yankees HOPE Week Presents Pillows Of Love

In the second day of the Yankees HOPE Week they visited 10 year old Autumn Blinn who has dedicated herself to helping those in need through her "Pillows of Love" movement.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi, Robinson Cano, David Robertson, Jayson Nix, and Vernon Wells attended her event at the Ronald McDonald House on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Autumn was surprised to see the Yankees players walk through the door as she was handing out her homemade pillows to the sick children at the hospital. The players spent time with the patients, Autumn, and Autumn's family by handing out pillows, playing games in the game room, and by having a pizza party. Autumn and her family were invited to Yankees Stadium tonight to watch the Yankees take batting practice and be part of an on the field ceremony before they take on the Kansas City Royals at 7:05 pm ET.
