A kid in Kentucky named Walker Smallwood was a promising pitcher until he was diagnosed with bone cancer in his leg at 15 and couldn’t play baseball anymore.
The best news is that three years later, he’s in remission. But even though he’ll never make the big leagues now, he wanted to pitch one last time. So earlier this month, his coach let him start his first varsity game and planned to let him face a few batters. And instead . . . he threw a complete game no-hitter.
