Singleton honored during Yankees Hope Week

Marketing and Communication

Charleston Southern University student-athlete Chris Singleton landed in New York, expecting to tell his story on the NBC Today Show; he would be in and out and back on a plane to Charleston. Not so fast, young man. 

During his short visit on the show, Singleton got a surprise when New York Yankees outfielder (and Holy Hill native) Brett Gardner, Alex Rodriguez and Delin Betances walked on the set to invite him to Yankee Stadium to throw out the first pitch prior to tonight's Yankees game against the Minnesota Twins at Yankee Stadium.
