    It's always nice to here about players, especially young guys, doing things like this.

    Robinson Cano buys ambulance for his community in DR (merged)

    A Yankee Needs an Ambulance, to Help His Home Country


    New York Yankees’ Robinson Canó, right, with a hospital representative, seeks an ambulance for his hometown in the Dominican Republic.

    By DAVID GONZALEZ
    Published: June 19, 2007

    When Robinson Canó, second baseman for the New York Yankees, went comparison shopping for a new vehicle recently, he wound up at a Bronx hospital.

    He wasn’t injured. He was sizing up ambulances so he could donate one to the hospital in his hometown in the Dominican Republic, San Pedro de Macoris. He is doing this not at the urging of a tax adviser or media consultant, but because of a nagging memory.

    A friend who once played softball with him, Luis Romero, was thrown from a motorcycle last year when it bounced at the bottom of a hill.

    “He hit his head,” Mr. Canó said softly. “The hospital had no ambulance, so they had to put him in a jeep and take him to Santo Domingo, an hour away. He died when he got there. Maybe if they had an ambulance with first aid he could have been saved.”

    Good for him! He seems like a genuinely good kid (albeit one that may be letting his fame go to his head).
