Baseball fans, we've got some great news to brighten up your Sunday.


After taking leave of the team, former ​New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson announced that he is officially cancer-free Saturday night at the Baseball Writers’ Association dinner in New York.

​​Alderson left the Mets last year after his cancer returned for a second time. Luckily, all of that is in the past now, as Alderson even said, "My health is great," when discussing his current medical situation.


Alderson has actually been cancer-free for four months now, but only last night did he decide to make the news public, waiting to be absolutely certain before making such an announcement.


Alderson joined the Mets back in 2010, after decades of building and rebuilding the Oakland A's' minor league system, and based off of what he had to say at the dinner Saturday, he holds fond memories of his tenure with the team.

As for Alderson's future in the ​MLB, even he admitted that he is not sure if he will make a return to working in the big leagues any time soon. But that's certainly not what matters right now.
