    Rockies President found dead

    This just came over CNN's Breaking News:

    Keli McGregor, president of Colorado Rockies baseball team, found dead in a Salt Lake City hotel today, police say.

    Here's the link to what little bit CNN has at this point.

    Re: Rockies President found dead

    That's sad. Only 48 years old too. I read that he was a two-time All-American tight end at Colorado State and a 4th round draft pick by the Broncos in the 1985 draft.

    Also had four kids.

    Oh my gosh, what sad news.

    He looked young and healthy. I don't understand how this just happens? Any guesses?

    I don't like speculating on specific cases. At 48 could be anything from heart attack to aneurysm.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Heart attacks at a young age scare me to death. I'm only 27... but I'd do anything to avoid that. ANYTHING.
