Wake Forest baseball coach Tom Walter has donated a kidney to a freshman player who suffers from a disease that can lead to kidney failure.
Both Walter and outfielder Kevin Jordan were recovering Tuesday in an Atlanta hospital, one day after the transplant was performed. They are expected to fully recover by early April.
Jordan was a 19th-round draft pick of the New York Yankees last June.
Walter said the “best-case scenario is that Kevin and I just lead a normal life” but added that the great story will come when Jordan “makes it back to the playing field.”
