Last month, MLB.com analyst Sarah Langs was honored at Yankee Stadium for the Fourth of July game between the New York Yankees and the Baltimore Orioles.
Langs was diagnosed with ALS last fall.
Despite her diagnosis, Langs has continued to fight through adversity and inspire those around her.
She got to experience a truly special day at Yankee Stadium last month, as the crowd gave her a standing ovation and round of applause during a touching ceremony.
After the ceremony was over, Langs and her parents posed for a photo with Yankees ace Gerrit Cole and manager Aaron Boone.
Topps recently turned the photo into a baseball card.
On Twitter, Mark Feinsand, Langs’ colleague at MLB.com, posted a photo of the special card and declared it his new favorite.

This is a nice gesture by Topps.
Langs is currently fighting through a disease that medical researchers have still yet to find a cure for.
However, she remains a force of positivity and a source of inspiration for those around her.
Because of her bravery and positivity, she got the chance to take center stage at Yankee Stadium with the whole city of New York standing behind her and cheering her on in such a special moment.
Now, that moment can be commemorated thanks to Topps giving Langs and her family their own special baseball card.
Even in the midst of fighting this terrible disease, Langs has been an inspiration for all those around her and throughout the Major League Baseball community.NEXT: Josh Bell Reacts To His Electric Marlins Debut
