In baseball, spring is a time for hope

Here’s your daily dose of sweetness 2.0.

You may recall this lovely picture from a NewsCut post last August, when the twin daughters of Cleveland Indians player Mike Aviles took the pitcher’s mound before a game, and his daughter, diagnosed earlier in the season with leukemia, threw out the first pitch.

When she was diagnosed, Adriana told her father she wanted to throw out the first pitch at a game.

His teammates all shaved their heads.

His team decided not to trade him during the season, so he could be near his daughter’s hospital during the treatments. He has since signed with the Detroit Tigers.

Fast forward to today.

Aviles announced his daughter is cancer free.
