2/16/2020 Damn, one of my favorites....skooler1
Damn... Always sad to see someone pass that young... not even retirement age (the general 65 years old minimum for regular people not Baseball players who are set for life by the time they turn 30) and he already is gone... Kidney Disease, oof that's a tough one to handle... Condolences and best wishes to his family
