Kemp makes cancer-stricken fan's day

(Continued)

That attitude was reinforced recently when Kemp learned his cousin had died.

“Life is so much bigger than baseball,” the two-time All-Star said. “I mean, you can sit here and think about going 0 for 4 with four Ks and you get mad, and you can complain about the stupidest things sometimes. But things like this humble you and keep you grounded and let you know that somebody’s life is way worse than whatever it is you’ve got going on.

“That makes you a stronger person and makes you grateful for everything that you have.”
