Rob Manfred issues a statement on the death of Darryl Hamilton



From the Commissioner’s office:

“All of us at Major League Baseball are shocked and saddened by this tragedy.  Darryl followed a successful 13-year career on the field by assembling a multifaceted career in our game, working for MLB Advanced Media and in our Baseball Operations Department before moving on to MLB Network.  He was a talented and personable individual, and we were proud to call him a member of the Baseball Family.  On behalf of Major League Baseball, I extend my deepest sympathies to Darryl’s family and his many friends throughout our game.”

In addition, Bob Bowman, President of Business & Media for Major League Baseball, said:

“Darryl Hamilton joined in 2003 and distinguished himself with his insight, experience, humor and team spirit.  As an analyst at MLB Network since 2013, he found a new role in which he excelled.  In addition to being a consummate professional, he was a good friend to all at and MLB Network, and he will be sorely missed.”
