David Wright: Gifted and Giving Baseball Star

David Wright is the All-Star third baseman for the New York Mets. Off the field, Wright began the David Wright Foundation after the 2005 season. He became most involved in the fight against multiple sclerosis, a disease that attacks the central nervous system consisting of the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. It can lead to numbness or even paralysis and blindness. Author: Marty Gitlin.
