'IHIIW inn i> jSalesburg Register-Mail,fojesburQ,,111. Tuesday, June 19, 1973 11)0111 oson Doc 811 1 Let Stop .. By mm GORDON BtXKJNttNOtON, Minn. (DPI; — His lifelong dream was to be a big league baseball player and now that he has madb it Minnesota Twins shortstop Danny Thompson isn't going to let leukemia hold him-back. ''Really, it's the same for e\$r#body 6n this earth," Thompson. 2fl, says. ''You just, have only so long to do your thing. "You don't have time to get down. You've got to keep your head up and go fight at it." It was lough to accept last winter when Thompson found out he had leukemia. But fighting back is nothing new for Danny, an Oklahoman who docsrt't drink or smoke and gets along with most everybody. Danny had no advance warning of his latest problem. Last year, in His first full season in the majors, he led all shortstops in both leagues in hitting with a .276 average and, in January this year, he was feeling in peak condition when he reported for, his annual preseason physical. The team physician, Dr. Leonard JY Michienzi, called him back for more tests because of an "infection," then said he wanted a bone marrow tap. "What's going on, Doc?" asked a curious Thompson. "What are>you looking for?" "We're checking for leukemia," Michienzi replied. Thompson then was diagnosed as having chronic granulocytic leukemia which, under current medical knowledge, is usually fatal. Doctors gave Thompson five years to play baseball. "Danny reacted with dls* belief," said his wife, Joi who is expecting their second child about July 4. "It was, pretty hard to accept for someone, who has always relied on his body for his livelihood." . in the four and one-half months since he was Informed of his disease, Thompson has learned to cope almost tin* noticed, keeping his feelings bottled inside. "I didn't really want it to come out in the news last winter," he said. "It's a personal thing. But if you're going to have leukemia, I guess I've got tJhe best kind to have. The only -symptoms I had is that my wtyte blood cell cQunt Is high—about 28,000 instead of 6,000 to 8,000. They can't even treat it until it's 100,000 and it's not dangerous until it's 700,000." Despite a rash of t arm injuries which may have contributed to his team high 14 errors, Thompson had played In all but a half-dozen games up until recently, batting about .260. Then he pulled a hamstring muscle June 13 and that was expected to sideline him at least a week. Twins manager SYank Qulllcl said of Thompson's leukemia: "As long as Danny hits the baseball and fields, he will play. Our biggest problem with Thompson is over-hustle. He's a dedicated kid. Me wants to play every minute of every game.
