Orioles' Chris Davis hosts Second Annual Crush's For Hearts event

BALTIMORE, Md. (WMAR) - First baseman Chris Davis and his wife Jill held their Second Annual Crush's For Hearts event.

Davis teamed up with Medical heroes to make a difference.

“Her doctor, doctor Kaushal performed open heart surgery at 4 days old and she’s defied all odds. We thought there would be developmental delays and learning disabilities and she is a smart as a whip,” said Rakita Ames, mother of a 2-year-old.

The event helped bring together patients at Maryland University Children's Hospital and the Davis' for a day of fun at Camden Yards.

This year was extra special for the Davis family as hey welcomed their own twin bundles of joy to the worlds this offseason.

“Just put a smile on their face when you know they might be in the hospital a lot of their days and traveling back and forth that’s a lot of stress for the families. We’re happy we can provide and give them a little bit of a break. Try to take their mind off of what’s going on and help them be a kid again,” said Chris Davis.

The doctors who saved these Children's lives get to see the result of their life-saving procedures.

"We are committed to making sure kids in Maryland can get care the way we are positioned in the state it's probably a 30-minute drive or less if a family needs our care," said Steve Czinn, University of Maryland Children's Hospital.

Living miracles on a field of dreams.

"There are a number of kids, many of them here today who would not have have been expected here today who would not have been expected to survive 25 years ago," said Geoff Rosenthal, University of Maryland Children's Hospital.
