Yankees pitchers Gerrit Cole, Jason Montgomery, and Nestor Cortes laugh with Dominick Krankall on the field at Yankee Stadium before a game May 11, 2022. The 6-year-old boy who was burned by gasoline last month was the Yankees’ special guest at their game versus the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday.
The young boy burned by gasoline at a Bridgeport home last month visited Yankee Stadium Wednesday and met with the team’s players on the field before seeing his first major league game.
In a video posted to Twitter, 6-year-old Dominick Krankall can be seen getting a baseball from Gerrit Cole, who leads the Yanks’ rotation, and talking with Cole and fellow pitchers Nestor Cortes and Jordan Montgomery.
Dominick also threw a ball back and forth with Cortes, got some treats from the dugout, and posed for pictures on the field prior to the Yankees’ home game against the Toronto Blue Jays.
In a video shared by the team, Dominick’s father, Aaron Krankall, said the experience was “unbelievable.”
“This has been so great,” Krankall said. “We’re just so appreciative. He’s having the time of his life. This is his first game, so it makes it even better.”
“6-year-old Dominick Krankall recently suffered severe burns, but he is an absolute warrior!” the team said in a Tweet. “We are so excited to have him here at Yankee Stadium for a special day.”
In an email, Michael Margolis, the Yankees’ senior director of communications and media relations, said that Dominick was accompanied by his parents and four siblings as special guests of the team.
“After the field visit, the family enjoyed the game from a Yankee Stadium Suite and received Yankees merchandise from the team store,” Margolis said.
The team tweeted that the players “were honored to spend some time with Dominick before today’s game.”
The Yanks won the game 5-3, with 42,105 in attendance.
Dominick was released from Bridgeport Hospital last week, according to hospital spokesman John Cappiello.
The family said he suffered second- and third-degree burns on his face and legs when he was hit by a ball set on fire.
Police have said up to four children were left unattended and seen last Sunday afternoon “with gasoline and lighting objects on fire” on Louisiana Avenue. Police said one child was transported to the Bridgeport Hospital burn unit.
Police have not provided more information and have not said whether charges are pending. A city spokesman said Thursday the incident remains under investigation with fire inspectors awaiting an analysis.
