Never say never. Cystic fibrosis hasn’t stopped senior business administration major Daniel Seddon from playing baseball for the University of Missouri–St. Louis.

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.
