Josh Tomlin's father will get to see his son pitch in the World Series

CLEVELAND - Some might say this year's Cubs-Indians World Series is nothing short of a miracle.

Both teams have had baseball longest World Series droughts and both have been plagued by whispers and theories of curses.

But Cleveland Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin knows what a real miracle is.

It's his father, who spent two months in the hospital this season after a serious spinal cord issue called arteriovenous malfunction. After undergoing surgery, Tomlin's father, Jerry, hopes to someday get feeling in his legs again. 

MLB.com writer Anthony Castrovince tells the full story here.

Now, Tomlin is slated to pitch Game 3 of the World Series in Chicago. And his father will be in the stands to see it, Castrovince reports.
