Yankee legend to take local kid on shopping spree

GLENMONT, N.Y. – Yankees legend Bernie Williams is in Glenmont on Friday for a very special reason.

Williams is taking nine-year-old Nick Rychcik of Ballston Spa on a shopping spree at the Walmart Supercenter.

Nick is a patient at Albany Medical’s Melodies Center, where he is being treated with a rare but aggressive form of childhood cancer. He’s a huge baseball fan so he gets to storm the aisles with Williams as part of Pepsi-Co’s “Shop with an MLB Player” program.
