Prognosis good for former MLB star Dave Roberts


According to a report in the Los Angeles Times, retired Major League Baseball player Dave Roberts is facing an excellent prognosis in his battle against Hodgkin's lymphoma.

He has finished eight rounds of chemotherapy and is now beginning three weeks of radiotherapy at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston.

All the while he has continued his front office work as the special assistant to baseball operations for the National League's San Diego Padres, who are currently in first place in their division.

Roberts was diagnosed in March 2010, but we first reported on Roberts' diagnosis in early May when he went public with the news.
