Carone has been battling pancreatic cancer since May 2013 and these past few years he has done a cancer fundraiser, "BP for a Cause," where he goes to major league ballparks and takes batting practice with the teams. He recently visited U.S. Cellular Field and the White Sox and on Thursday, Sept. 22, he will visit Miller Park in Milwaukee.
