The Arizona Diamondbacks announced the following statement from President & CEO Derrick Hall today regarding the death of Colorado Rockies' President Keli McGregor.
"This sport lost a true friend and gentleman today. Keli has quickly become one of my closest friends over the last few years. In recent months, our collaborative work and vision on creating our new spring home has made that bond even tighter. I am deeply saddened that he will not see the project upon its completion, but even more distraught over the tragic thought that this beautiful family will be without its loving husband and father. We will miss him dearly."
