  Votto HR ball given to family of 6-year-old cancer victim A Joey Votto home run ball caught in the stands at a Cincinnati Reds game in August will be given to the family of a six-year-old boy who witnessed the moment weeks before dying of cancer. Trey Jones and his son Keegan, who caught the souvenir off the bat of the Reds superstar, donated the ball to the family of Walter Herbert last week so it could be added to a memorial wall for the youngster, reports WXIX-TV. The story of Herbert, who earned the nickname "Superbubz," became one of the most sentimental storylines of the past season after Votto hit a solo home run for the youngster, and then followed it up with a high-five.

NBC Sports analyst Pierre McGuire underwent surgery to remove his prostate last week after being diagnosed with prostate cancer. The longtime broadcaster announced the news on TSN 690 in Montreal on Wednesday and said he feels “fantastic” after a successful procedure.

“I had no signs at all that I was ill,” McGuire said. ”My work habits hadn’t changed, my workout habits hadn’t changed. My eating habits hadn’t changed. I hadn’t lost weight and hadn’t gained weight.”

He said that he expects to be back at work for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang starting in February.
