SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -
Spring training is when a lot of baseball dreams come true. And they certainly will next week for one lifelong braves fan from Savannah.
Josh Cooper, who is receiving at-home hospice care for pancreatic cancer, will see his first Braves game in person next week.
Mr. Cooper has rooted for the Braves since the team moved to Atlanta in 1966, always on TV and radio, but Chaplain Drew Corbett, of Spanish Oaks Hospice, has arranged for Cooper and several family members to travel to Orlando for next Saturday's Spring Training game between the Braves and Astros, an experience that's been a lifetime in the making.
"He and I were talking about baseball and he liked (the Braves) too,'' Cooper said of Chaplain Corbett. "So he wanted to do something special for me and he just wanted me to have this trip. He thought this would be good for me since I've never been to a live game. I'm just excited and so grateful.''
Cooper's tickets came courtesy of ESPN Wide World of Sports.
And, he's told they are right behind the Braves' dugout, so he'll get a great view of his first big league game.
