Read about this today. My prayers are with him. Story...

Surprise, Ariz. -- The Texas Rangers announced today that minor leaguer 1B/OF Jason Hart is expected to miss the 2004 season after being diagnosed with a non-cancerous, operable brain tumor.

Hart's condition was confirmed during a series of tests after he reported to the Rangers minor league camp last week. He is expected to undergo surgery in the next few weeks to have the tumor removed.

"Our organization is shocked and saddened to hear of Jason's diagnosis," said Rangers general manger John Hart (no relation). "Our medical staff feels this has been caught early and we all hope we see Jason back on the field as soon as possible."

Hart spent 2003 with Oklahoma and appeared in 137 games for the RedHawks. He batted .252 and led the team with 21 home runs and 82 RBI. He appeared in 10 games with the Rangers in 2002. Texas acquired him from Oakland on January 14, 2002 with pitcher Mario Ramos, outfielder Ryan Ludwick and catcher Gerald Laird in exchange for infielder Carlos Pena and pitcher Mike Venafro.

The Rangers are in the planning stages of support initiatives in Jason's name and will announce those in the near future.
