The Denver Post is reporting that Colorado Rockies President Keli McGregor was
found dead in his hotel room
this morning. The specific cause of death is not known yet, but police are saying that it was natural causes.

McGregor is likely more well-known nationally for playing tight end for the Broncos, Colts and Seahawks, but he’s been with the Rockies since they began play in 1993, starting out as their senior director of operations.  He’s a major figure in the Denver area, both for his work with the Rockies and for his work in the community.

He and his wife have four children.  Pray for them if you’re the praying type, think of them if you’re not.

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
