His son was stricken with leukemia. During Lee's brief time with the Phils,
his son received treatment at a certain hospital in Philly. His son (Jaxon)
only had a 30% chance of survival.
After treatment & finding a bone marrow match, Jaxon is now in remission.
While there are likely equally fine hospitals in NY & Texas, the Lees were
impressed with the Philly hospital.
I believe this is the main reason why Lee didn't sign with the Yanks/Rangers.
