Ohio State pitcher Zach Farmer says his leukemia is in remission

Ohio State baseball player Zach Farmer received some good news this week. His leukemia is in remission.

The freshman pitcher, who was diagnosed with myeloid leukemia, is ready for the next step in his recovery, a bone marrow transplant.

The Buckeyes coaching staff did not know that Farmer had any medical issues until he informed head coach Greg Beals, the final week of April that while he was throwing on the side, he felt dizzy and weak.

The athletic trainers were alerted to Farmer’s condition and testing revealed that he had leukemia on April 29.

Farmer’s teammates and coaches in an effort to help, all were tested to see if they were a bone marrow match.

Farmer’s last win of the season was on Sunday, April 20 against Murray State, 7-3 at Bill Davis Stadium. He ended the season with a 6-4 record.

Every year in the NCAA Tournament, there are upsets waiting to happen.

One of those teams include Morehead State of the Ohio Valley Conference.

In the state of Kentucky, the kingpins are Kentucky and Louisville. But there are several other good basketball teams in the state, Murray State, Morehead State to name a few.

Morehead State is located in the rural corner of northeastern Kentucky in a town of 6,000 people in Morehead.

The team often plays against Kentucky and Louisville during the regular season.

The Eagles upset the Cardinals 62-61 in the NCAA Tournament Denver’s Pepsi Center in the first round.

Morehead State’s star Kenneth Faried blocked a last-second shot attempt by Louisville’s Mike Marra, allowing the Eagles to beat the Cardinals for the first time since 1957, a span of 13 games.

The Eagles were trailing 61-59 with 23 seconds left. Demonte Harper, their senior guard was having a bad game shooting the ball from 3-point land (0-5), but he took the shot that won the game with 4.2 seconds remaining for the win.
