Trey Mancini is battling stage 3 colon cancer at the age of COVID-19, but he won’t do it alone.
The Orioles shocked the bass player and their first outfielder on Saturday for Zoom’s call with nearly 40 players and the coach holding a board reading “# F16HT” – a new appeal for Mancini, who uses number 16.
Manager Brandon Hyde and players Chris Davis, Hanser Alberto, DJ Stewart, Chance Sisco, and Austin Hays were among those who participated in the call, which made Mancini smile broadly.
Mancini left the team in March for the so-called “non-medical baseball procedures” at the time. 28 years revealed last week that he started six months of chemotherapy on April 13, which occurred after he had a malignant tumor that was surgically removed from his large intestine on March 12. Mancini did not expect to play this year – if not at all.
Because restrictions were imposed due to coronavirus, Mancini had been forced to undergo chemotherapy alone at a hospital in Baltimore, but said staying in touch with his teammates through the process had made a big difference.
“Really, the support I get from everyone has just been extraordinary,” Mancini wrote in The Players’ Tribune. “This gives me credit for the many things that I always have, but they are ignored when I live my daily life. Experiencing something like this really made me understand all my blessings.
“Like the text chain that I live with my teammates. We actually have a large group group chat. It always works, but it means more to me now. I have kept in touch with them and updated them with everything that is happening. That exchange means a lot to me now. I love those people. “
