Nationals owner Mark Lerner had cancer, leg amputated

WASHINGTON (AP) Washington Nationals owner Mark Lerner said Thursday night in a letter to a Washington Post columnist that he had cancer and had his left leg amputated.

In the letter to columnist Barry Svrluga, the 63-year-old Lerner wrote:

"Thanks very much for your concern and good wishes. I know you recognize that only something really challenging would have kept me from my favorite seat at the ballpark these past months. In early January, they discovered Spindle Cell Sarcoma in my left leg above the knee. Radiation was completed in March and I had surgery in April to successfully remove the cancer. The radiation treatment eventually caused the wound not to heal properly.
