Yankees, Sox Unite to Help Child: An 11-year-old girl who lost her leg in an accident has managed to unite the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees. After the daughter of Sox first base coach Ron Johnson needed a prosthetic leg after being hit by a car, Yankees hitting coach Kevin Long asked the team's players to help last September. Members of both teams passed the hat and sent "significant" checks. "You just wanted to help in any way you can," said Yankees pitcher A.J. Burnett. "We're a huge family here. Whether you're a Yankee or anybody else."
