Winnebago Yankee sends family on vacation to Florida
Joba Chamberlain, a member of the Winnebago Tribe who plays for the New York Yankees, paid for a family's vacation to Disney World.

Every year, Chamberlain picks a well-performing student from one of the elementary schools he attended in Lincoln, Nebraska. This year fifth-grader Riley Ressen and his family got to go to Florida.

Chamberlain takes a family on vacation because he never had one when he was growing up. He was raised in a single-parent home by his father, Harlan Chamberlain, a tribal member.
