In October, Vitale revealed a diagnosis of lymphoma. He returned to emotionally call several games, but after a diagnosis of dysplasia on his vocal cords, Vitale pulled himself off the air. He had surgery on his vocal cords in February, and was released from the hospital following a successful post-op evaluation.
