The second baseman is the second leading hitter on the team and is an inspiration to his fellow teammates. His condition is known for creating a build up of mucus in the lungs.
“It’s a battle really. Every day I’ve got to wake up and do medicine just so I can breathe, so about 40 pills a day and breathing treatments every night,” Seddon said in his recent interview with KSDK (Channel 5).
He was featured for his inspiring success story of living with cystic fibrosis.
“When I was a baby, I remember my parents told me, ‘Just do whatever you want to do.’”
The Tritons are currently 11-2 with the help of Seddon who played in 11 of their 13 games.
Prior to his baseball career at UMSL, he won a state championship with Fort Zumwalt South High School in St. Peters, Mo.
