Like many athletes, Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer uses social media as a way to congratulate a friend or teammate, capture a moment at special event or show off his latest style.
But Hosmer also uses Twitter and Instagram to send well-wishes to a sick child. He did that with Dominic Matthew Johnson before Dominic’s untimely death in June.
On Friday, Hosmer shared a photo of 2-year-old Karter Strand, who has stage 4 neuroblastoma cancer.
