Just like last year, Joba Chamberlain will be bringing a hard working student and their family down from Nebraska to enjoy an all-expenses paid Disney vacation. This year’s lucky kid is 11-yr old Jazmine Meyer King, a student at Clinton Elementary in Lincoln, who will be joined by her parents and brother. The vacay starts this weekend, and it’s great to see any player, not just Joba, giving back like this. These stories are too few and far between.

    I’m sure this will get just as much attention from the press as his DUI charge.

      Just like EVERYONE talked about Mattingly’s positive comments about A-Rod.

        The media really friggin’ hates giving the Yankees positive press. I don’t understand why only Yankee-centric media outlets give a fair and balanced point and view.

          and then get hammered for being yankee homers

    I wish I could find a picture of young Jazmine King and her family. I’m from Lincoln and went to highschool with a Richard King who, if memory serves, had a kid our senior year; might be the same guy.

    (Lincoln’s not that big.)

      Do you remember if he was a big fan of the movie “Aladdin”?

      Look in your yearbook. Does it say…

      TSJC, I can’t believe we finally graduated! What a ride!
      A whole new world
      A new fantastic point of view
      No one to tell us no
      Or where to go
      Or say we’re only dreaming
      A whole new world
      That’s where we’ll be
      A thrilling chase
      A wondrous place
      For you and me

      Your buddy,

    I can only imagine what kind of charities Joba will commit do when he signs that 5 year, $100M extension in 2013.

    • Joe G.

      Hopefully he teams up with CC’s charities and distributes sammiches to all.

    Joba is a quality dude. Hopefully he gets the nod for opening day at New Yankee Stadium because, not that I don’t love CC, Joba is homegrown and he deserves that legendary start.

      i dont think “deserve” is the right word, but i wouldnt mind seeing him get that start… but moreso because hes clearly very popular with the fans, and yes, a damn good pitcher

  • Drew

    He did something great like this last year with something dealing with Disney World, I can’t remember the specifics. He’s a great young player and person.
