Family of former Illinois Baseball and New York Mets pitcher Jeff Innis is asking for help to get him home in his final days.
In a GoFundMe posted this week, Innis’ family said he has been battling cancer since 2017 and it recently took a turn for the worst. Family said his treatment at a Houston area hospital is no longer viable, and they’re trying to get Innis home to Atlanta so he can spend his finally days in hospice care with his family. “We appreciate any support you can offer as we bring Jeff home to rest peacefully,” the family wrote.
Innis was a standout reliever who mostly played on some really bad Mets teams in the late 80’s and early 90s. A lifetime Met who played only 7 years in total, I never heard or read a bad thing about him and word has it that he also played in fantasy camps after he retired. It’s not looking good at the moment, but prayers to his family and loved ones.
