On Tuesday, the Oakland Athletics revealed they lost one of their minor league players. The team announced that pitcher Sean Murphy passed away at the age of 27.
According to the A's statement, the athlete died suddenly in Arizona on Monday. The club took to Twitter to share their condolences for the baseball player's untimely passing, sharing:
The team then released this statement about Sean's death, while also honoring accomplishments:
You'd think people would learn by now!
Not everyone always uses the best judgement when it comes to posting things online and Curt Schilling's decision making skills were apparently piss poor which resulted in him being fired from ESPN!
The former Major League pitcher and baseball analyst was reportedly fired by ESPN earlier this week over an extremely offensive anti-transgender post he made on Facebook.
Schilling supposedly shared:
Barack Obama is getting heat once again!
Over the past week, the president made an historic trip to Cuba to restore U.S. relations, and mixed business with pleasure when he attended a few innings of a baseball game on Tuesday.
But many critics weren't happy with Obama's sports spectating and on-air interview with ESPN the same day over 30 people were killed in the Brussels terror attacks.
So, after a video surfaced on Wednesday night featuring POTUS dancing the tango with Michelle Obama at a state dinner in Argentina, commentators put him on blast for his vacation-y optics in the wake of such a tragedy.
Thursday morning's panel of MSNBC's Morning Joe agreed that while Obama should not have cancelled his Argentina trip after the Brussels attack, he probably shouldn't be smiling in a Dancing With The Stars-esque photo op the day after he was doing the wave at a baseball game.
Council on Foreign Relations president Richard Haass said:
The New York Yankees third baseman has been playing pro for two decades, much of that dominating the sport, with a career 3,070 hits and 2,055 RBIs.
But 2017, the final year of his $275 million 10-year contract, will also mark his last at bat. He told ESPN:
"I won't play after next year. I've really enjoyed my time. For me, it is time for me to go home and be dad."
Awww! Lucky kids!
Interesting note for his final season: with 687 career home runs, the 40-year-old needs only 28 to catch Babe Ruth as third all-time home run leader behind only Hank Aaron and Barry Bonds.
Good luck, A-Rod!

Talk about putting your family first!
Veteran Chicago White Sox designated hitter and first baseman Adam LaRoche just made a MAJOR decision to choose family over work!
Adam is retiring from baseball instead earning $13 million by playing this season!
Normally athletes who step away from a sport do so because of injury, or old age as they just can't keep up anymore.
In LaRoche's case, the 36-year-old has decided to quite because the White Sox asked him to decrease the amount of time he brings his 14-year-old son Drake into the clubhouse!
We are SO on #TeamMeghan with this one!!
