ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A 10-year-old boy helped brighten the day of a baseball legend, all by writing a letter.
Phillip is from Maryland and is a huge Baltimore Orioles fan. He wrote a letter to a Rochester Red Wings icon Joe Altobelli, asking the World Series champion coach for an autograph.
Altobelli is a resident of the Edna Tina Wilson Living Center in Greece.
With help from staff and Altobelli's family, Phillip got a letter back and a signed photo.
Phillip said it wasn't just about getting a signature, but also about cheering Altobelli up by receiving a letter.
