Jack Hoffman took the Sharpie and spelled out his first name in big block letters on a fan's T-shirt Monday afternoon.
The 7-year-old from Atkinson, Neb., paused and looked up at the big screen at Omaha Baseball Village outside of TD Ameritrade Park. His now famous run during Nebraska's spring game was on.
Jack's final day of chemotherapy is Tuesday, and the people at the village, run by the Old Mattress Factory, wanted to make sure he had a little fun, spokeswoman Jenny Peters said.
Jack received a baseball glove, batting gloves, a custom baseball with his face on it and a GoPro camera to wear at the game between Mississippi State and Indiana, the only College World Series game he'll attend this year.
And with the fanfare came media attention.
Cameras surrounded Jack as he signed Team Jack T-shirts, the popular shirts used to raise funds for and promote awareness of pediatric brain cancer research through the Team Jack Foundation.
Reporters asked him and his father, Andy Hoffman, questions about the promotions and the amazing moments from meeting President Barack Obama to having his own trading card.
During the game, Jack appeared on the big screen. When he announced to the crowd “tomorrow is my last day of chemo,” fans erupted with one of the biggest rounds of applause of the night.
Yet another day where the spotlight brightly shined on the cancer-fighting boy.
