That is incredible. Personally lauded as an inspiration by former President Bush.

You are an amazing person Gary.

I had no idea either, as I wasn't keeping up :(.

George HW said his name and I saw the picture and was like "holy crap!".

That's pretty cool. His website traffic should go way up now.

Congrats Gary!! You are a true inspiration for all of us and you deserved the tribute that you got tonight!! MLB did a great job on honoring you and the other local hero's. My wife never gets on this board so she doesn't you but was in tears after hearing your tribute. I hope you had a blast!!!

I'll have some photos posted soon and video not on here but I will post the video on Youtube and then the link of course. The Red carpet thing was just something else I was in that and have the flim. I went to the homerun derby and also took flim. Don't hurt me but I met Jeter on the field most of the players came over to congratulate all of the winners but only five were picked for the video. David Wright remembered me from when Harry Smith from The Early Show broght me to the Mets game and he was eating dinner a I did not want to bother him but a very kind young lady went and told him I was there and he came right over and told me there was no better person than me to picked to go to the behalf of the Astros. But he also told me to watch the Mets beat up on the Astros after the All Star break. I met Reggie Jackson. Being at the press meeting was lots of fun and I shook hands with NBC sports caster Bob C. MLB.com hit all of the winners up for some media coverge on their website. Richard Jistice did a piece on me from the chron. Miggy and Hunter were one of a kind as players weren't too much into signing for fans at the hotel but Miggy and Hunter sure did so a big hats off to them. Miggy came right over and told me he remember me from my name being called as the winner at the Astros games. After the players saw me in the video lots of them came over to see me as they were leaving to go home. Hunter said to me that I now inspire him. All winners really had great causes and were sent home with outstanding gifts by MLB and had sky box tickets at the game and much more during our stay. A big thanks to all of you for voting you guys are great and made a dream of mine come true.

Hadn't been able to post, but I was dang proud to see Gary on the TV at the all-star game! I'm proud to say I've met you Gary and keep doing the good work you're doing! Way to go!
