to the families of Andy Marte and Yordano Ventura.
Both will be missed in baseball. Both had their ups and downs but both brought moments that fans will remember.
It is truly a sad day for baseball.
p.s., there may be an other ML and minor league alums who passed away recently who are not mentioned here or in articles about Marte and Ventura. Sometimes those passings are only found in small, local articles in the areas in which those former players/managers/staff and umpires lived or from the teams they worked for. My condolences go out to their families, as well
