Rick Semmler @ WTHI-TV:

Josh Phegley’s baseball career is on hold right now. The Wabash Valley baseball great has been out of action for a week and it looks like he will miss another month.

The former Terre Haute North baseball star is being treated for I-T-P syndrome, it’s a virus that attacks platelets in your body…

This is very serious, but not life threatening for Josh. Right now his body can’t produce the correct amount of platelets and until it can, he can’t play baseball again..

He is on a steroid to try and stabilize the platelets and get his body back to normal…

God, that sounds awful for Josh. Hopefully the treatment works.

BTW, here’s Wikipedia’s ITP entry.
