Mancini achieved O status in first home game since surgery
Trey Mancini had a memorable afternoon in the Baltimore Orioles’ home opener on Thursday.
Mancini was playing his first game at Oriole Park in Camden Yards since being diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer last March. Mancini missed the 2020 season, but was declared cancer-free in November and was able to return in 2021.
Mancini was recognized with a huge standing ovation from Orioles fans during pre-game introductions as well as ahead of his first at bat against the Boston Red Sox. Even the Red Sox players joined in the applause.
