Baltimore Orioles: Baseball mourns two of their own

The Baltimore Orioles and the rest of baseball were saddened yesterday when it was announced that former big leaguers Luis Valbuena and Jose Castillo were killed in a car accident. Valbuena was 33. Castillo was 37. The duo were playing in the Venezuelan league, and the accident occurred after they left University Stadium in Caracas.

I feel as if everytime we turn around each off season, there’s another player being killed in a similar manner. That of course being car accidents. I suppose it just goes to show you that circumstances don’t discriminate between rich, poor, famous, or not famous. Our lives are very precarious, and they can be ended on a wham.

Any and all who knew and loved these two are in my thoughts. I know that I say that on behalf of the entire Orioles family – players, employees, and fans.
