BALTIMORE (AP) - Gov. Larry Hogan stopped by Camden Yards to help the Baltimore Orioles in the fight against childhood cancer.

Wearing an Adam Jones jersey, Hogan posed for pictures in front of the mound Wednesday night before Baltimore faced Boston.

The governor helped hold up a check for $50,000 that the Orioles contributed toward the cause. He was surrounded by children representing the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Hogan is currently undergoing chemotherapy to treat non-Hodgkin lymphoma, which was diagnosed in June.

The governor says his condition intensified his effort to make a difference in eradicating pediatric cancer.

He says, “It’s a whole new job for me. These kids are literally fighting for their lives.”

Hogan says he has two rounds of chemotherapy remaining.
