Tennessee Wesleyan Baseball surprises local kid battling cancer
Neyland is just 8-years old and has battled and beat cancer twice, but he's not done fighting. Neyland is currently fighting Leukemia for a second time.
The Athens, TN native was surprised by his new favorite baseball team on Wednesday, the Tennessee Wesleyan Bulldogs.
According to a family Facebook post Bulldogs Head Coach Bill Berry heard about Neyland's courage and invited him to practice. The Bulldogs gave Neyland gifts, took pictures and played around in the indoor hitting facility after a long day of treatment.
Neyland has an open invite to any Tennessee Wesleyan baseball game or practice from here on out.
Neyland's family tells Ch. 3 that they are playing fundraisers to help with his treatments and we'll share that info when we get it.
