For the first time in his life Drew Cumberland was bitter toward baseball…He was forced to quit playing earlier this season after being diagnosed with bilateral vestibulopathy, a disorder where portions of the inner ear that control balance are damaged…Cumberland saw doctors all over the country after the initial diagnosis. The infielder would be excited after one appointment, being told he could continue to play and then down after he was told he couldn't. It was finally determined in early April by a team of doctors at the Mayo Clinic that he had to retire.
