Reds third-base coach Berry diagnosed with cancer

Never good to hear about things such as this…

Reds third-base coach Mark Berry has been diagnosed with cancer in his left tonsil and on two lymph nodes on the left side of his neck.

Berry, 50, left camp last week to undergo a surgical biopsy and some tests to verify the cancer diagnosis. After returning to the team on Sunday, he informed the players in the clubhouse during the morning meeting….

...Berry is still deciding on the course of treatment. His options appear to either be surgery or seven weeks of radiation at University Hospital in Cincinnati.

If Berry chooses the radiation route, he would have to limit his work schedule with the team. He would not be able to travel or attend day games at home since he would be getting treatment.
