BALTIMORE – Rena Barron was still traumatized by her stage 4 colon cancer in February of last year when a friend sent her a link to an article on Tre Mancini.
Mancini was at the time in his sixth year with the Orioles. Barron lived in Baltimore in between for 20 years, but was never a fan of baseball. You’ve never heard of Mancini before. But her 15-year-old son, Ellie, is a baseball fan and an Orioles fan.
