“All of us at the Pittsburgh Pirates are shocked and saddened by Evan’s sudden passing in his sleep this past weekend,” Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said. “Beyond being just a talented ballplayer, Evan was a great teammate and a quiet leader who went about his craft as a professional every day.
“Off the field, Evan loved making a difference in the community, and often dedicated a lot of his time working with children in the communities in which he played. Our heartfelt sympathies and prayers go out to his family for this unimaginable loss. He was far too young. He will be missed.”

Mrs. U -
I will be picking up Braden at 12:55 today. Braden has an appointment with Dr. McCutchen. Braden has Bucco fever.
Must-click, if only to see the “awwwwww”-inducing sight of the l’il charmkins in the St. Clair Hospital neo-natal ward dressed up in Pirates onesies.

In the midst of all the gloom that day, Neil Walker was born in Pittsburgh, which was something of a miracle in itself.
Walker’s father, Tom, had been a major league pitcher. After his rookie season, 1972, he had played for a winter league team in Puerto Rico with the Pirates superstar Roberto Clemente.
On New Year’s Eve, Tom Walker helped Clemente load supplies into a plane for a relief mission to help earthquake victims in Nicaragua. Walker offered to go, but he was single, and Clemente told him to stay in Puerto Rico and enjoy the night.
