Disabled Baseball Fan in Bangor Lives Out His Dream 

Catherine Pegram

A baseball fan from Bangor with muscular dystrophy is living out his dream in New York this weekend. Jeff McIntyre will watch his favorite team take to the field tomorrow night – the Yankees. And they’re going up against none other than the Boston Red Sox. McIntyre is confined to a wheelchair and needed special transportation to get to the game. The folks with Autotronics in Bangor heard about McIntyre’s plight and rented him a van with a wheelchair lift.Friends worked to pull off the rest – getting free tickets and raising money to pay for the trip. McIntyre left town today and is expected back Monday. By the way, if you haven’t heard, the Yankees clobbered the Sox in last night’s game – 13 to 6.
