Kansas City Royals’ starting pitcher Yordano Ventura has passed away at the age of 25. Ventura was tragically killed in a car accident in the Dominican Republic on Sunday morning.

Former Cleveland Indians, Atlanta Braves and Arizona Diamondbacks’ infielder Andy Marte was also tragically killed in a car accident in the Dominican Republic on Sunday morning.

“Sad to learn of Andy Marte’s death this morning,” read the Indians’ statement. “He was a genuine person who always greeted you with a warm smile.”

Andy Marte's last MLB game was 8/6/14 w/ Arizona, against KC. Royals starting pitcher that day? Yordano Ventura. Both gone too soon. RIP.

My deepest condolences to the Ventura and Marte families..  Another day where we have to reflect on how precious life really is.

Brings back memories of OT. Especially since him and Ventura were good friends. My first thought was about Ventura writing OT #18 on his hat for that world series game and then going out and pitching a great game.
