Woodmansee’s efforts certainly take on a new light after Mets legend Bud Harrelson was recently diagnosed with the condition. The details of Harrelson’s heartbreaking story can be found in Bob Klapisch’s hearbreaking New York Post article.
Certainly, the MMN staff wishes Woodmasee the best of luck in his efforts, and we hope this will prove to be a springboard to a terrific 2018 season for him. More importantly, we wish Harrelson and his family the best of luck as he undergoes this battle.
