With all the bad publicity athletes create these days, it’s almost impossible not to become bitter and resentful. Thankfully, there are still good guys left in the game like 24-year old Matt Laporta.
Recently, a member of Freedom Card Board had to go in for surgery. During recovery, his parents left and when they returned had quite a big surprise with them. Matt LaPorta, one of baseball’s most hyped prospects came in and spent over an hour with Anthony.
Not only did Matt make his year by showing up, he also brought tons of goodies including a signed Louisville Slugger bat and baseball. In return, LaPorta’s new lifelong fan gave Matt a wooden cross necklace which he immediately put on and promised to never take off.
