This Man’s Selfless Final Act Saved the Life of One of His Sports Heroes
In November 2016, Konrad Reuland, a former NFL pro, suffered a brain aneurism. Sadly, Konrad passed away soon after, but he maintained his positive spirit until the end, telling his mom that he knew “God had something big in store for me.” Shortly before his death, Konrad had become an organ donor. Little did he know that his heart would be given to one of his heroes, baseball legend Rod Carew. The two only met once, but Rod will be keeping Konrad’s spirit alive for the rest of his days as he shares Konrad’s story in hopes of inspiring others to follow in his selfless footsteps.
