NEW YORK – The New York Yankees are stepping up to the plate for a 10-year-old Pennsylvania girl who said she’s been bullied for years at her elementary school.
The team posted a video on its social media accounts Wednesday, featuring 24 of its players holding up anti-bullying messages.
“That is an invite to the clubhouse. I hope, at some point, we can get her out,” said Yankees Manager Aaron Boone.
“To see our guys stand up and have a role in that is is not surprising because I know all those guys in that room and the character that they are,” Boone added. “But it was something that we’re we’re glad that we could maybe play a small role and help a bad situation out.”
Last year, WNYNewsNow reported on a 14-year-old girl that took her on life after she told her Aunt she was the victim of repeated bullying at Jamestown High School.
