Ex-pitcher Jim Corsi announces terminal cancer diagnosis

Former Major League pitcher Jim Corsi announced Monday he has advanced liver and colon cancer and doesn't have long to live.

In an interview with WBZ-TV in Boston, the veteran of 10 seasons said he has Stage 4 liver cancer and colon cancer. Corsi is 60 years old. "I'm at peace. I know if I die, I'm going to a better place," Corsi told WBZ. "That's the No. 1 thing. I feel sorry for everybody that I'll leave behind. "I made a mistake when I was younger, not getting a colonoscopy," Corsi said. "I was a professional athlete and thought I was invincible, strong. You're not. Cancer is not prejudiced to anybody." Corsi went 22-24 with a 3.25 ERA in 368 major league appearances (one start) for five teams, most notably the Oakland A's (1988-89, 1992, 1995-96). He also pitched for his hometown Boston Red Sox from 1997-99. Corsi was born in Newton, Mass. Corsi notched seven saves and struck out 290 in 481 1/3 innings. He retired after the 1999 season.
