Here is a very interesting article on one of the best and most consistent hitter in Major League Baseball’s history.  I encourage anyone to read this article, and if you are a baseball fan you should definitely read it.

Here is a quick summary:

Tony Gwynn, former San Diego Padre right fielder, used to show up to field everyday with a pinch of smokeless tobacco in his mouth.  It calmed his nerves, he was addicted.  Not even two tumors in his mouth stopped him.  But then another tumor was found, and he had gone to far.  It was cancerous.  This tumor was wrapped around his nerve, so he lost feeling and movement on the side of his face.  He couldnt laugh or smile.  However, after months of chemotherapy, he was able to beat the cancer and regain his laugh and smile once again.
