RIP Tommy,,,say Hey to Buddy for all of us

Andy Marte- He was the top minor league prospect in the Braves organization several years ago and was being groomed as a possible replacement for Chipper Jones.  But he was traded to the Red Sox in 2005 after Chipper signed a contract extension.

It is being reported that Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura was also killed a car accident earlier today. Not sure if it was the same accident that killed Andy Marte.  A sad day for baseball.
