This is so sad, and definitely NOT the kind of news we will ever want to bring you.
Pat Neshek, a reliever for the A's, has lost his newborn son just 23 hours after he was born.
They don't even know the cause.
Here's what he said:
"Please pray for my family. Tonight my wife & I lost our first & only son 23 hours after he was born with no explanation."
We don't even know what we can say in this situation.
Here's what his team said:
"Our hearts go out to Pat and Stephanee and we share in their sorrow of losing their young son. The entire A's organization will keep the Neshek family in our prayers and thoughts, as they try to come to grips with this tragic occurrence in their lives."
"Now is a time to pray for Pat Neshek and his wife. I'm sorry to hear that buddy. Prayers are with you @PatNeshek."
Even other teams provided condolences, like the D-Backs pitcher, Daniel Hudson:
"Just saw a tweet from @PatNeshek prayers and thoughts go out to him and his family. Couldn't even imagine… #BaseballFamily"
Our hearts, thoughts, and condolences go out to you, your wife, and your family too, Pat.
