Life transcends baseball. And so does death.
My heart goes out to Scott Schoeneweis and his family on the sudden passing of his wife. She was found in the master bedroom of the Schoeneweis house by their 14 year old daughter. The only thing sadder than a parent burying a child is a child discovering a dead parent. (When I grew up there was a girl in my neighborhood whose dad sent her to wake her mom up one morning. Her mom never woke up. She had died of a heart attack in her sleep.) The emotional scars from that may never go away.
As we Jews say “May the mourners be comforted together with the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.”
