New York Yankees remember 9/11 with moving pre-game ceremony

Prior to the New York Yankees matinee game against the Baltimore Orioles game on Wednesday, the Bombers held a very touching ceremony to honor those who were lost on that day.

Congressional Medal of Honor recipient Sgt 1st Class Leroy Arthur Petry was recognized, while Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld escorted wounded warriors from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center onto the field.
