PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A local cancer survivor will take the field at Citizens Bank Park on Wednesday night to throw one of the ceremonial first pitches for Game 4 of the World Series.
Luke Theodosiades, a 19-year-old Phillies fan from Ridley Township, will throw a first pitch as a special invited guest of Major League Baseball and SU2C (Stand Up To Cancer).
"It's really exciting," Luke said. "I've always been a big Phillies fan, so when I heard it I was just so grateful and thankful for all the nurses and doctors that put me here today."
At the end of the 5th inning, Luke and his family will join SU2C and First Lady Jill Biden by holding up placards with the names of loved ones affected by cancer.
They will also be watching the game with the First Lady.
That study and clinical trial is part of the reason Luke is in remission from lymphoblastic leukemia.
Luke now attends Kutztown University and been cancer-free for six years.
Phillies legends and 2008 World Series champions Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley will also be at Citizens Bank Park on Wednesday night.
They'll be among the participants in the ceremonial first pitch.
