St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame outfielder Lou Brock has been diagnosed with bone cancer and is being treated for multiple myeloma, the team announced Thursday.

According to TMZ Sports, Brock was supposed to make appearances with the team at an event later this month but had to cancel due to the treatments.

“Jackie and I appreciate the prayers and support we have received from our many friends and fans in the Cardinals community,” Brock said. “We count ourselves blessed that I am receiving the best possible medical treatment and we look forward to seeing many more Cardinals World Series Championships in the future.”
