5 days after his last radiation, Jack stepped onto the Mariners' field and lit up the crowd. He had the honor of throwing out the ceremonial first pitch to fellow NE Seattle Little League alumn and Garfield Varsity catcher, Matthew Koplowitz. Jack proved his strength, tenacity and ability to recover in the second inning with Garfield's first hit of the game and a deep foul ball catch into the seats. A huge shout out to Garfield super fan and volunteer team photographer, Bill Kossen, for capturing these moments.
We are so very grateful to Coach Chris, the coaching staff and Jack's incredible Garfield teammates for their ongoing support and kindness. Thank you for saving Jack a spot on the team.
