Martin says he learned about the crash from the team's bat boy, Ray Negron.Ibanez says that the Bronx River Parkway tragedy affected him personally since his children are the same age as those who died in the accident.

"It's something unimaginable and my condolences go out to the family and the community," said Ibanez. "It's a very difficult and tragic loss."

One student who showcased her singing skills was presented with a replica Yankees ring.
