With athletic family all around, DeShields fits into Indians

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Dad, the elder Delino DeShields, is working less than 100 yards away, behind a fence dividing Cleveland’s training complex from the Cincinnati Reds facility. Sister Diamond DeShields is just a phone call away.

Together, they help Delino DeShields strive to meet his latest challenge: making an impact in his first season with the Indians.

He talks baseball and life with Dad and mental outlook with his sister, a rising WNBA star.

“Baseball is a big part of our lives, so it is something we both bond over,″ DeShields said of his father, a 13-year MLB veteran who is in his second year as the first base coach of the Reds.

John Olerud’s daughter Jordan, born with a rare chromosome disorder, dies at 19

Jordan Olerud, the daughter of former MLB All-Star John Olerud, has died at 19 years old after living with a rare chromosome disorder since birth.

The heartbreaking news was confirmed in a tweet by Jay Horwitz, vice president of alumni public relations for the New York Mets, where Olerud played from 1997 to 1999.


Jordan, who was the middle child in the Olerud family, was born in August 2000 with a unique chromosome syndrome called tri-some 2p, 5p- which means she had an extra second chromosome and was missing part of her fifth chromosome.

As a result, Jordan didn’t reach milestones at the same time as other children her age and required special care from Olerud and his wife, Kelly.
