    Default Ventura killed in car crash.

    I was just think that the MLB had not lost a player this year in the DR.
    Very sad one every year. RIP

    Also Andy Marte in a separate crash this weekend according to CBS sports.

    Yahoo Sports article includes links to pictures from Ventura's crash. The comments are interesting to say the least. http://sports.yahoo.com/news/report-...162113356.html

    Another terrible tragedy involving vehicles. Again and again, it shows how unsafe it is to drive in the DR.
    When I go on vacations with my wife to visit family and friends, I would dread the taught of renting a car. The law needs to be strongly enforced against drunk driving, passing traffic lights and any other unsafe acts or else these types of tragedies will continue. My deep sympathies to the ball players and their families.

    In a bitter twist of fate, Marte’s final MLB game was against the Royals, whose starting pitcher that day in August 2014 was Ventura.

    The two were killed in seperate accidents last night. Yordana Ventura was a very close friend of Oscar Taveras, who was also killed in the very same manner. Upon the death of Jose Fernandez in September, he wrote the numbers of the 2 on his cap. What are we left with? This makes me so angry. 3 young lives ended prematurely by actions that could have been avoided. An earlier poster made reference to thank God no other lives were taken with them due to their negligence.....with this I must agree. Very sad, but very much avoidable.
