DANVILLE -- One little boy was honored in a very special way Tuesday night. 5-year old Tanner Haurez threw out the first pitch at the Danville Dans game. He's been battling leukemia since January. The team has rallied around him.

One player actually took him to the mound on his shoulders. Moments later, Tanner tossed a strike across the plate. Even fans wore orange to show support. Tanner just got done with a round of chemotherapy. He's currently in remission.
