THE BRONX - The New York Yankees honored an MTA bus driver who made headlines for saving the life of a young girl in Brooklyn.

Steve Saint Bernard is credited with catching the girl as she fell from a three-story window in Coney Island a few weeks ago.

Saint Bernard's arm was still in a sling as he stepped onto the field during Tuesday night's game at Yankee Stadium and received a $1,000 savings bond toward his daughter's education.
