MLB player Anthony Vasquez makes remarkable recovery from brain surgery

A Major League Baseball player is excited to suit up during Spring Training .

Just three months ago, Seattle Mariners player Anthony Vasquez didn't know if he was going to be able to play.

"I just tried to take it one step at a time," said Vasquez.

He was working on a shoulder injury at the Mariners' training facility in Peoria when he felt like something was wrong. He had vision loss, dizziness and headaches. Doctor's found a ruptured blood vessel and had to operate quickly.

"I'm extremely lucky. God was looking out for me," he said.

Vasquez says he's back at 100 percent and ready for the season to start.
