Casey Blake hit one out of the park Wednesday.

The starting third baseman for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Indianola native made a surprise visit to 13-year-old cancer patient Ciara Sturm.

Sturm received the 26th of 28 radiation treatments for Hodgkin’s Disease Wednesday at the Mercy Cancer Center in Clive. Before returning home to Gowrie, she met up with Blake and several TV cameras.

“So this is why you wanted me to dress up,” Sturm said to her mother, Angel.
