Whatever happened to Wendell Kim? The sad story

Alzheimer’s Disease is a crushing affliction. .

Wendell Kim, 64, a long-time major and minor league coach should be spending his days playing golf near his home in Arizona, like many others in his profession. He had a long career with the San Francisco Giants, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, and several minor league clubs.

Instead he is in a silent world of his own—all by himself. The world of Alzheimer’s Disease. And—according to a friend of his—he’s not coming back.
