A Death In The Family

I can’t say I knew John Brattain, or that I’d ever read his stuff, but I join The Hardball Times [1] in mourning his death. He was part of the fraternity of baseball writers, but far more importantly, he was a husband and a father. Brattain died from complications [2] following surgery at the age of 43.

You can find Brattain’s writing [3] via his page at The Hardball Times and reminisce about the man and his work over at Baseball Think Factory [4], where he was a frequent participant.
