The Chicago White Sox on Friday evening played host to a 7-year-old shooting victim who, after making a remarkable recovery, said he just wants to play baseball again.
Rayshon Cobb took a bullet to the head during a drive-by shooting on Christmas. Initially, doctors were not sure he would recover from paralyzation on his right side and loss of all speech and motor skills.
But recover, he has. He can now shoot hoops like any other boy his age and plans to return to school in the fall.
In celebration of his remarkable recovery, the Sox treated Rayshon, his family, and his rehabilitation team from la Rabida Children's Hospital to Friday's game.
The boy and his caregivers also got to watch batting practice, meet players, and get photos taken with several members of the team.
