Very sad news to report today.
Former Braves and Angels pitcher Tommy Hanson has died at the age of 29. Sources cite complications from massive organ failure, but as of this post have been unable to determine what caused this to happen so suddenly.
[I just really liked this photo used.]
Hanson was touted as a pitcher for the future in the Braves organization, but shoulder injuries took its toll. His last MLB start was for the Angels in 2013. In the last several years, he’s been bouncing around the minors with the White Sox and Giants organizations.
Tommy leaves behind a wife and three children.
