Dillon Marsh pitching for UK baseball.

“One of the reasons why I want to make it some day is for those kids and families who are going through a hard time, to just let them know that I’m here. Diabetes did not stop me. I’m here.”

The COVID-19 outbreak has caused sports to halt completely, but in the midst of this stressful time and on MLB’s “Opening Day at Home,” we’d like to highlight the inspiring story of University of Kentucky baseball player Dillon Marsh, who is using his Type 1 diabetes diagnosis to inspire kids and their families – like our patients at the UK Barnstable Brown Diabetes Center. 

Watch this video to learn more about Dillon's story.
