Wake Forest coach Tom Walter stepped in and donated a kidney to freshman outfielder Kevin Jordan. None of Jordan's family members were a proper match. Both men are recovering at Emory Hospital in Atlanta after Walter donated a kidney to Jordan on Monday. "When we recruit our guys, we talk about family and making sacrifices for one another," Walter said before the operation. "It is something we take very seriously. I had the support of my family, Wake Forest and my team. To me it was a no-brainer." Jordan, who was selected by the New York Yankees in the 19th round of the amateur draft in June 2010, started feeling ill in January 2010, after he had committed to Wake Forest.
