Yesterday was such a sad day in the sports world.
Family, friends and fans are devastated by the loss of three prominent sports figures: a legendary golfer, a talented young pitcher, and up and coming football star.
This guy was an absolute legend in the golf world.
He was nicknamed “The King”.
Palmer won 62 PGA Tour titles and seven major championships.
He died of complications from heart problems in Pittsburgh, at age 87.
Here’s a look back on his impact…
He was 24 years old with a promising career ahead of him, many thought he had hall of fame potential.
Jose Fernandez was one of baseball’s brightest stars.
The Miami Marlins pitcher died in a tragic boating crash early Sunday morning.
I'm still waiting to wake up from this nightmare. I lost my brother today and can't quite comprehend it. The shock is overwhelming. What he meant to me , our team, the city of Miami, Cuba & everyone else in the world that his enthusiasm/heart has touched can never be replaced. I can't fathom what his family is going through because We, as his extended Family are a wreck. I gave him the nickname Niño because he was just a young boy Amongst men , yet those men could barely compete with him . He had his own level, one that was changing the game. EXTRAORDINARY, as a person before the player. Yet still just a kid, who's joy lit up the stadium more than lights could. A kid whose time came too soon. One that I will miss & never forget. Rest In Peace Niño, Jose Fernandez 🙏🏽
Another life taken too soon, this time in an act of violence.
23 year old Detroit-born defensive back for the Calgary Stampeders, Mylan Hicks died early Sunday morning.
Calgary Police say there was a fatal shooting outside a nightclub and three suspects were arrested.
