New York's 30th comeback victory of the season ended at 12:41 a.m. EDT.

Afterward, as part of their HOPE Week community service project, the Yankees hosted a mini-carnival on the field for kids with Xeroderma Pigmentosum, a rare genetic disorder that prevents people from going outdoors in daylight because any exposure to UV light causes serious burns and eventually eye and skin cancer.

The children and their families arrived from Camp Sundown after it was dark and were scheduled to have their run of the field until about 4 a.m.
That was nice of them. What a tough disease.
