Jay Horwitz: John Stearns is battling tough disease

In a somewhat vague (for privacy?) blog, Jay Horwitz shares

John (Stearns) is currently in as assisted living facility in Denver and he is battling a tough disease.

For those of us raised on the late 70s Mets, Stearns is one of our all time favorites.  I wish Mr. Stearns nothing but the best.
