Alex Gordon Newsbeat

Saturday, April 13, 2019

Royals’ Alex Gordon wanted to honor a kid battling cancer. Then he hit a home run

As he touched the plate to conclude his home-run trot, Royals outfielder Alex Gordon tapped his right elbow. Hours earlier, he had scripted seven letters onto a yellow band and wrapped it around his arm.

CHARLIE.

Charlie is a teenager battling pediatric cancer. He had been in remission, but needed a brain operation on Friday, according to a team official. He is part of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, which supports childhood cancer research.

On a night in which he wanted to remember Charlie as he played, Gordon offered the kid something he likely will not forget.
