Bad news for baseball.
Baseball lost another of its own today. Not my favorite player. Not my favorite team.
But very, very sad.
Suicide suspected. Since “retiring” in 2002, it’s been a checkered life, with bar fights and ridicule. Remember Steinbrenner’s “Fat Toad” remark? Sad events like this remind us all that, despite our passions, it is just a game. And they are just people. And it’s sad that anyone ever felt this alone.
Rest in peace.
