Jay Gibbons's Mother Passes Away

Postby brandnew » Thu May 25, 2006 1:12 am

Just an FYI. That really sucks.

May 24 The Associated Press reports Baltimore Orioles OF Jay Gibbons was not with the team for the Tuesday, May 23, game against the Seattle Mariners after his mother passed away earlier in the day. A team spokesman said it is unknown whether Gibbons will go on the bereavement list and be out indefinitely. KFFL sends its condolences.

I was getting irritated with Gibbons missing two straight games but I guess this type of tragedy warrants him sitting out a few. :-/

One more note: There's another link in his player page that indicates he might start on Thursday.

Gota feel for the guy, im not even pissed that he's not playing. He deserves some time to grieve. All we can do is hope he'll be okay and continues his hot start this season.

Wow. Losing a parent. I cannot even fathom that.

Take your time Jay, baseball will be here when you get back.
