Former MLB Pitcher Jose Lima Dead at Age of 37 of Apparent Heart Attack
I was always a big fan of Jose Lima, not so much for his pitching, but for his personality. He was a very outgoing player, always had a great quote any time he spoke to the media, and his enthusiasm on the mound is the stuff of legend. I am saddened by his death and prayers go out to his family. Here are the details from ESPN.com:
Former All-Star right-hander Jose Lima died Sunday morning at his home in Los Angeles at the age of 37.
The cause of death was ruled a heart attack, according to his wife, Dorca Astacio.
“Jose was complaining while sleeping and I just thought he was having a nightmare,” Astacio told ESPNdeportes.com. “I called the paramedics, but they couldn’t help him.”
Being in my 30’s, things like this always scare me immensely, so all I can say is treat every day like it is your last and always tell the people you are close to that you love them.
RIP to “LIMA TIME…BELIEVE IT!!”Powered by Sidelines
