Rockies Go To Bat For College Coach With Rare Cancer

​AURORA, Colo. (CBS4)– A college baseball coach, battling a rare form of liver cancer, got some encouragement Tuesday from the pros. Three Colorado Rockies players surprised him at the University of Colorado Hospital. It was a moment to remember.

Colorado Rockies Players: “Surprise!”

Luke Kalb: “Oh, wow!”

Carlos Gonzalez: “What’s up Luke?”

Luke Kalb: “How’s it going guys?”

Luke Kalb played it cool, but he was clearly shocked to open the door to a conference room and see Rockies right fielder Carlos Gonzalez, aka Cargo, left fielder Gerardo Parra and catcher Tony Wolters. The trio was fresh from a much-needed win.
