Wow. Did not realize he had passed. Self-medicating for undiagnosed mental illness sounds about right. RIP.

Yeesh. I had no idea about this story. Terrible for Halsey and his family and friends. : (

Scary and sad. In retrospect I may have walked past him one of those days on the San Antonio riverwalk and had no idea.

Of all the things you may need to help a loved one through - injury, disease, disappointment - I imagine the hardest is when the person is incapable of accepting the help, and you just have to watch.

Nit patrol: The ball Jeter caught on the "dive" play was fair. With men on second and third in extras. I've seen a subtle revisionist movement about that play over the years, and while I believe this author just made an honest slip, here I am manning the ramparts.

I had no idea that Brad Halsey died or that he was mentally ill. Tragic.
