Zach Lucas will celebrate his 19th birthday today. It's a birthday that he hopes will be one of many, many more in his life - a life he nearly lost. A freshman at Salisbury University and a former baseball star at Williamsport High School, Lucas never expected to experience his own brush with death at such a young age. Lucas and his teammates were at the pitcher's mound shaking hands with Virginia Wesleyan players following their season opener on Feb. 12. Suddenly, Lucas dropped to the ground and lost consciousness.
