BALTIMORE — The fight against colon cancer for Orioles Outfielder Trey Mancini is getting wide-ranging results.
During his fight, the team sold shirts with proceeds going to the Colorectal Cancer Alliance.
The ball club said those shirts brought the alliance more than $80,000.
Mancini said for him, that money's just the start.
“I've got a few ideas of what to do. I'm working with my older sister and Sarah and a few other people who are really helping me plan a few events to benefit the Colorectal Cancer Alliance, to help with early screening because people are getting it at a much younger age now and we're not exactly sure why but there is a reason, and we want to find that out.”
Mancini added he's not just going to advocate for younger people getting screened, he's going to help pay for screenings.
He said he isn't sure how that will happen at this point, but he promises that it will.
As for baseball, Mancini is feeling good. He’s hitting and getting workouts in to prepare for spring training in March.
