Danny Farquhar to Throw Out First Pitch Just Weeks After Brain Hemorrhage

Just over a month after suffering a brain hemorrhage that nearly killed him, Chicago White Sox pitcher Danny Farquhar is going to make an incredible step forward in his recovery.

According to the team, Farquhar will throw out the first pitch for the White Sox before the team’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers on June 1.

Farquhar, who suffered a ruptured aneurysm during a game on April 20 against the Houston Astros, was rushed to a local hospital in critical condition, but has since made a remarkable recovery and was recently released from the hospital.

The hurler will be joined by his wife Lexie and his three kids, and doctors from RUSH University Medical Center will also be in attendance at the game. 

Farquhar has visited the White Sox clubhouse twice since the scary incident, including before Wednesday’s game against the Baltimore Orioles.

Doctors say that they believe Farquhar will be able to pitch again, but will not medically clear him to play in 2018 so that he can fully recover from the hemorrhage.
