UM's Phillips has triumphant return after battling leukemia

Making his first collegiate appearance with Maryland and playing in his first game since 2015, Terrapins junior pitcher Billy Phillips entered the team's second game of a doubleheader against Tennessee on Sunday in the sixth inning. Phillips has been battling leukemia since high school and finally had the opportunity to make his long-awaited debut, and he did not disappoint.

The 6-1 lefty struck out the first batter he faced, then followed that up by rolling a double play to end the inning. He was swarmed by teammates as he walked to the dugout, each giving him a hug, recognizing the journey he's been on and his courage in the face of adversity.

Maryland lost the game but won the series, starting the season 2-1 in the opening weekend of the season. The Terps will return to action on Wed., Feb. 21 against William & Mary.

Watch Phillips' impressive return to the mound below.
