Date:6/28/2011

NEW YORK, June 28, 2011  /PRNewswire/ -- For the second year in a row the New York Yankees have stepped up to the plate to help the Starkey Hearing Foundation deliver the gift of hearing to more than 175 hearing-impaired children and adults from the New York City area. The Starkey Hearing Foundation New York Yankees Hearing Mission was held today at Yankee Stadium and included a special visit by New York Yankees Pitcher CC Sabathia, Manager Joe Girardi and former Yankees pitcher and coach, Mel Stottlemyre, who were present to witness the moment some of the patients could hear for the very first time.

Working alongside a team of Starkey Hearing Foundation audiologists and staff to assist in the hearing aid fittings of the recipients, who ranged in age from four to 80, were Sabathia, Girardi and Stottlemyre. Each was paired with at least one recipient during the mission, sharing the emotion with parents as their children were able to hear their voices for the first time thanks to their new, custom-made, digital hearing aid courtesy of the Starkey Hearing Foundation. Patients receiving hearing aids hailed from all five boroughs and Long Island. In one case, a 14-year-old boy from Brooklyn who was both deaf and blind was able to hear for the first time; while two mothers and daughters also each received their first hearing devices.

In addition to being fitted with their own custom-made, digital hearing aid, each recipient's hearing device was programmed for optimal hearing. They were also provided with a generous supply of batteries, as well as instruction and counseling on how to care for their new device, all courtesy of the Starkey Hearing Foundation.
