Just a quick note and sad news coming out of the baseball world today. 2 players have died in car crashes.  The crashes were different crashes, and just a horrible coincidence. Whatever the case, it's devastating to their families and to the baseball world.  Say a prayer today folks.

Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura and Former Indian Andy Marte are dead.

Photo: Getty Images has the story about Ventura:

"Ventura was killed in car crash Sunday in the Dominican Republic. He was 25. 

Dominican national police colonel Jacobo Mateo Moquete identified the victim of a fatal crash as Ventura. Ventura’s agency confirmed his death to’s Jesse Sanchez.

Ventura’s death comes on the same day former Indians infielder Andy Marte was killed in a car crash in the Dominican. The accidents are unrelated."

About Marte, that comes from

"According to Dominican news website, Marte was traveling at "high speed" early Sunday morning when his white Mercedes crashed."

Sad news...
