For the first time since his season ended due to a broken collarbone in 2009, Ryan Westmoreland returned to LeLacheur Park on the road back from a much more serious malady. Westmoreland underwent surgery for a cavernous brain malformation in the spring and has been slowly working his way back to try and get on the field once again. The life threatening condition was first discovered during spring training and has slowed the 20 year old’s dreams of reaching Fenway Park. While the main concern for Westmoreland is living a normal lifestyle, the gifted athlete envisions a return to the baseball diamond and an eventual place on his home town Boston Red Sox.
Last night was a special night here in Lowell as Westmoreland was in uniform and took in the game from the dugout with is family and friends in attendance. Watch what he had to say about the progress he has made thus far.
