Yankees Honor Manhattan Student

Corporal Nicholas Jurek, a Manhattan College student who completed two tours of Afghanistan with the U.S. Marine Corps, was honored when the Yankees hosted the Detroit Tigers on Aug. 1.

Jurek and his family were honored on the field behind home plate during the seventh-inning stretch for Jurek’s service. The Yankees honor a veteran during the seventh-inning stretch of each home game in association with the Wounded Warrior Project Foundation.

Jurek, who is expected next to graduate next May, is studying nuclear medicine technology at Manhattan.
