Repack Haiku #177 (Brett Butler)

Amazing comeback:
Started year fighting cancer
Came back in August 

1995 Ultra #394 Bret Butler

In May of 1996, Butler had a tumor the size of a plum removed from his tonsils. Many wondered if he'd ever play again, but he returned to the field less than 4 months later and finished the season with the Dodgers. His story has encouraged many ballplayers to quit chewing tobacco.

  2. Always was a Brett Butler fan and I was one of the many Atlanta fans who were devastated when he was traded from the Braves.
