Former Met pitcher Anthony Young, who revealed in January that he had been diagnosed with an inoperable tumor on his brain stem, told Sports Talk Radio 1240 WGBB on Long Island that the tumor has shrunk after months of radiation and chemotherapy treatment. He is still undergoing treatment.
“I’m doing great,” he told the station. “I never got sick behind it, I drove myself ever day to chemo, I never missed a day of work. …. I had an MRI the other day, and the tumor actually shrunk some.”
Young is best known as the pitcher who holds the record for the most consecutive losses, 27, which happened over the 1992-93 seasons with the Mets.
