Wilkes-Barre Township, Luzerne County-A baseball legend made an appearance in Luzerne County.

Hall of Famer Lou Brock stopped by Grotto Pizza in Wilkes-Barre Township to meet with local doctors.

Brock was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about a decade ago, and now he travels across the country to raise awareness about the disease.

Brock, one of the greatest base stealers of all time, spent most of his career as the left fielder for the St. Louis Cardinals.

He was inducted into The Baseball Hall of Fame in 1985.
