Red Sox Draft Clemson Pitcher Hours After 1st Chemo Treatment

Tuesday, 16 June 2015 02:20 PM

The Boston Red Sox drafted a former Clemson pitcher just hours after he completed his first chemotherapy treatment.

Fox News reports Clate Schmidt, 21, who just finished his junior year at Clemson, was diagnosed this month with nodular sclerosing lymphoma.

“It was definitely a blow, to say the least,” Schmidt told the Boston Globe. “I’m not a kid that cries, like ever. But that was the first time in a long time that I shed any tears.”

But shortly after his first cancer treatment the Red Sox drafted him in the 32nd round with the 951st pick overall.

“I was astounded. It was something that was so cool,” Schmidt told “Fox & Friends” Sunday about being drafted. “I really appreciate everyone from the Boston Red Sox organization.”
