Tracy Morgan made a public appearance in his birthplace on Tuesday night. The comedian showed up in the front row at Yankee Stadium in The Bronx, New York.
Morgan has been a rare sight in public since a June 2014 car crash on the New Jersey Turnpike left him in critical condition. The 46-year-old survived the crash with a broken leg, a broke femur, a broken nose, broken ribs and other injuries.
Morgan's long-time collaborator, James McNair, was killed in the accident.

Two weeks ago, pictures surfaced of Morgan walking without a cane for the first time. This week, his recovery progressed enough to walk into the front row at Yankee Stadium to watch the home team take on the Red Sox.
Morgan, a fixture at Yankee games before his accident, appeared to be in good spirits at the game. The Yankees put him on the 'smile cam' and Morgan blew a kiss back.
