CHILDREN SING FOR SICK BOY AT SHEA STADIUM
New York, New York (AP)

About 15,000 children and Bob McGrath from "Sesame Street" gathered in Shea Stadium, but it wasn't for a New York Mets game.

It was to sing a song for 7-year-old Ronald Sterling, who suffers from a rare immune system disorder called Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome.

The group performed Thursday at the Queens stadium because Ronald loves baseball but is too ill to go to a game, and the children were at the stadium for a field trip anyway. McGrath, who plays the human character Bob on "Sesame Street," later presented a CD of the recording to Ronald at St. Mary's Children's Hospital.

"Ronald Sterling, you're a grand-slam home run, you're our champion," McGrath sang.

The song was created by Songs of Love, a nonprofit that writes and records one-of-a-kind tunes for sick children. The organization has created more than 12,000 professionally produced personalized songs.
