Gopher baseball pitching coach Todd Oakes was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in June of 2012 and had to undergo a bone marrow transplant and significant recovery time in the hospital. With the help of his family (including his son Tyler Oakes, a volunteer assistant for Minnesota) and the Gopher baseball team, Oakes returned in time for the 2013 season.
