Dave Parker is reporting that he has been battling Parkinson's Disease. He was quoted in this article:
"There's no fear," Parker told the Tribune-Review. "I've had a great life. I always dreamt of playing baseball, and I played. I'm 62 years old and fortunate to make it to this point. I have some beautiful kids that I got to watch grow up and become adults. My fingerprints are on the baseball industry. I feel good about that. I have nothing to feel bad about."
He goes on to explain some of the sumtoms he's had.
