Jason Motte is one of those special people that sports is blessed to have among its ranks. The pitcher’s motto, a quote by legendary baseball player Roberto Clemente: “Any time you have the opportunity to make a difference in this world and you don’t, then you are wasting your time on Earth.” — is printed on the inside of his revolutionary K Cancer t-shirts.

Motte’s zest for life and kindness are contagious, that’s why it was such a pleasure to put together this video on his Strike Out Cancer Night at Busch Stadium for the St. Louis Cardinals.
