No need to worry about the future of our nation, if it’s in the hands of someone like Nate McCarthy of Mukilteo.

Nate, who is 16, and undergoing treatment for leukemia, asked Make-A-Wish® if he could use his wish to update his high school baseball field.

Here’s Nate’s letter to Make-A-Wish about why he wanted this wish:

The reason that I would like my Make-a-Wish to be updating the baseball field at Kamiak is because baseball is my life. During the treatment I was at every game and the guys came to my house frequently to play video games or just to hang out and that helped me take my mind off my hard treatment. Throughout my treatment I just wanted to get back on the diamond, to be with my friends and have fun. Every guy on that team has gone through my treatment with me and has treated me with respect and kindness. I want to give back to them because they did this for me. I have been playing with these kids (juniors and seniors) since I was in Little League and have gotten to know them well. I want to be able to continue that especially on a diamond that everyone can be proud of and enjoy playing on. Thank you. Sincerely, Nathan, 16 years-old

Nate recently got his wish on World Wish Day, Mariners Hall of Famer Dan Wilson joined hundreds of people at Kamiak High School to celebrate a special wish by a special young man.

While Kamiak’s season is completed, Nate has been invited to join the United Way of King County All-Star Classic on June 15th at Safeco Field.

The Mariners are proud to join with Make-A-Wish to pay tribute to Nate. He is an inspiration to us all.
