  • Sad News - Former Braves Pitcher...

    Tommy Hanson dead at age 29.

    After falling into coma, former Braves pitcher Tommy Hanson dies at 29

    Former Atlanta Braves pitcher Tommy Hanson has died due to catastrophic organ failure, according to multiple reports. The news comes as a huge shock to the baseball world. Details surrounding Hansonís death are unclear at this time. Hanson fell into a coma on Monday. No details were given about the cause of his ailment, which reportedly began Sunday morning when he had trouble breathing and was rushed to a hospital. Born in Tulsa, Okla., Hanson was raised in San Bernardino County, Calif. He was a 22nd-round draft pick of the Braves in 2005 out of Riverside Community College, making his professional debut a year later with the Danville Braves of the Appalachian League. The Braves had such high hopes for Hanson that they released future Hall of Famer Tom Glavine to make room for Hanson on the roster. Though Hanson had not pitched in the majors since 2013, he was still an active player. Hanson spent the 2015 season in the San Francisco Giants minor-league system. He was pitching off a mound just a few weeks ago.

    Truly sad. I recall watching one of his first outings with the Braves. Regardless of team affiliation, or profession, it is sad when someone goes so young.

    I am wondering why/how... could it be drug related.

      Which would make it even more tragic, not to mention senseless.
