Veteran receiver Larry Fitzgerald is making positive news off the field once again
Not that this should come as a shock to anyone, but Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald is doing something wonderful…again. The face of the organization is granting a wish to a 7-year old.
As part of ESPN’s “My Wish” series, Fitzgerald is granting the wish of 7-year old Tennyson Erickson of Platte, South Dakota. Erickson recently spent time with Fitz.
Fitz played catch with Erickson and had him tag along with him to media day and during the team’s mini-camp. Word is the Cardinals organization was incredible to this young boy. That should not surprise anyone.
The 13th season of “My Wish” returns to ESPN’s Sportscenter this Sunday July 15th. In addition to Fitz, the series will also include the New York Yankees, PGA golfer Jordan Spieth, and NBA player Jimmy Butler.
Fitz’s segment is going to air next Tuesday July 17th on the 6 p.m. ET edition of Sportscenter. If you miss it, you will get a chance to see the re-airing on a special one-hour Sportscenter on Sunday August 1st at 1 p.m. ET.
“My Wish” is made possible through the Make-A-Wish foundation which helps children with critical illnesses realize their wishes. Fitz’s newest friend, Tennyson, has cancer.
This is who Fitz is though, so him doing this should come as no surprise to anyone. This is honestly the biggest part of who Fitz is that will be missed once he retires.
That’s not to say he won’t continue to engage in these activities, it is just this could be the last year he does it representing the Cardinals and their organization. This puts the Cardinals in a very positive light.
That is likely furthest from their minds though, especially Fitz. Fitz is just an all-around great guy and we are looking forward to seeing Tennyson Erickson play catch with Fitz on July 17th.
