Cardinals Hall Of Famer Lou Brock Diagnosed With Bone Cancer

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals say Hall of Fame outfielder Lou Brock was recently diagnosed with bone cancer.

The 77-year-old Brock was supposed to appear at a Busch Stadium event on April 25, but that has been canceled while he is undergoing treatment for multiple myeloma.

The former all-time leader in stolen bases had his left leg amputated below the knee in late 2015 because of an infection caused by complications with diabetes. He has since worn a prosthesis to throw out the occasional ceremonial first pitch at Cardinals games.

Brock was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1985, his first year of eligibility.
