Yankees fan Richard Albero, a teacher who has retired to Florida, is walking 1,200 miles -- from Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Florida, to Yankee Stadium in the Bronx -- in the name of the Wounded Warrior Project. Each mile is dedicated to a former Yankees player in the name of whom money can be donated for our servicemen and servicewomen. When Albero steps on home plate in New York, he will have completed the trek in memory of his nephew Gary, who died on 9/11. More than $25,000 has been raised.
