At 6'11" tall, Jon Rauch is the tallest player in Major League Baseball. The Mets pitcher and Olympic Gold medalist, took time out of his busy schedule to visit sick children at Ronald McDonald House of Long Island. Among the children he met were Sofia and Anastasia from Russia. He asked about their condition and about the life-saving surgery they will receive on October 3, 2012. Russian Gift of Life Executive Director Michael Yurieff explained how the operation works and that it has a very high success rate. Jon gave RGOL USA his twitter address and said he would follow the girls' progress.
