Boone to have open heart surgery

Aaron Boone, now with the Astros, will undergo open heart surgery to repair an aortic valve, reports Kristie Rieken of the AP.

“It definitely hits home, but I’m doing well with it,” Boone said. “I feel like I’m fairly educated on it now. I have a strong faith and a great family and friends and teammates. I really am doing well and I’m ready to tackle this thing and get it behind me and get on with life.”
Scary stuff. I wish him all the best and a speedy recovery. We will never forget what he did in the early hours of Oct. 17, 2003.
