Committed suicide today... 36 years old. Father and husband. Retired from baseball a few years back after admitting to having sustained 9 or 10 concussions. Has this always been such an issue or is it just making the news more over the past couple years?

I remember him. He also spoke to voices inside his head.

Brain injuries are a hell of a drug.
