Bad News Bears Remake Actress Sammi Kane Kraft Killed in Car Crash

Real-life athlete Sammi Kane Kraft, whose baseball skills and 70 mph fastball landed her a role in the 2005 remake of Bad News Bears, died in a car accident in Los Angeles Tuesday, E! News confirms.

She was 20.

As the article notes, Kraft was a legitimate baseball talent as a kid, having played in the Junior Olympics. A sad end to a promising life.

Another reason they shouldn't have done that awful remake.

RIP.

Yet another distasteful remark in response to a tragedy. If you're not going to come up with something more thoughtful, something insightful, something more appropriate to the situation, then why post a comment at all? These remarks are not funny, not a single one of them. Enough already.
