Before Ian ever played, he'd already made a comeback


Ian was born with a heart that was not fully formed. It was a serious condition that affects blood flow, but it can be treated through a series of corrective surgeries.

Now 10 years old, his days of surgery are past and dreams of knocking it out of the park are well within reach.
