Kansas City Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura has reportedly died in a car crash earlier today. The news has come as a huge shock for the fans of the 25-year old pitcher who helped his side win the 2015 World Series title in 2015.
Latest reports suggest that the fatal car crash happened in his native Dominican Republic. Reports also suggest that a former player, Andy Marte, also lost his life in another car crash in Dominican Republic.
Yordano Ventura was not someone who can be shot down by his opponents. He was aggressive to the core and never shied away from confronting his opponents. He was a fierce competitor always willing to challenge hitters inside, then deal with the ramifications when they decided to charge the mound.
