Last night, Chad Bettis was the starting pitcher for the Colorado Rockies against Atlanta.
It was his first start since undergoing treatment with chemotherapy for testicular cancer.
After nine weeks of chemo, he fired 7 shutout innings.
“It crept in this morning, when I woke up, just thinking about everything that had happened, everything that my family and I had been through,” Bettis said. “I was holding back tears until the start.”
“[Kristina] doesn’t know how big of a facade I was putting on,” Bettis said. “As strong as I was trying to be, I was more leaning more on her and our families and my teammates and everybody that was lending support, whether it was via social media, letters, prayers, everything.”
