Liam Hendricks, who was shocked by being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a type of blood cancer last January, is receiving great applause as he pitches in the bullpen amid support from fans and colleagues.
On the 20th (hereafter Korean time), Hendricks said on his personal SNS, “Cancer is scary and difficult. Anyone who has been through this will know what I mean. Damage everyone around you. But I am thinking positively every day. I want to let you know how much support and support from fans and colleagues has been.” The Chicago White Sox cited the news and expressed their love for him.
He emphasized that he would return quickly from last month, and he is putting this into practice. He is known to have pitched in the bullpen on the 18th in Glendale, Arizona, USA, where the White Sox spring camp was set up. It won’t be easy, but he continues to pitch even while fighting his illness.
“I love him,” White Sox pitching coach Ethan Katz said. His pitching right now is unbelievable. Everyone at the club knows he’s special, and he’s really great.” 바카라사이트
Starting pitcher Lucas Giolito said, “Actually, I was really heartbroken that he was sick. But Hendricks is killing the disease in his way. He moved with them every day. He motivates me,” he explained.
Australian closer Hendricks debuted in the big leagues in 2011 and has been active. He recorded a career record of 31 wins, 34 losses, a 3.81 ERA, 115 saves, 42 holds and 724 strikeouts. He was selected as an All-Star three times and won the Mariano Rivera Award twice.
This year, he was also scheduled to participate in the World Baseball Classic, but was unable to participate due to the disease. It was expected that it would not be easy for him to return this season, but as he continued pitching in the bullpen, there are also opinions that whether or not he will return later will be a little different.
