saddened devastated to report that my colleague and friend, John Brattain, has died. John was a fine baseball writer and a fine human being. He will be missed more than I can articulate.
I will offer additional thoughts at Hardball Times
a bit later. Meanwhile, if you want to know about John, start here:
Also, for those interested in attending services, here is information from John’s family:

Finally, Dave at THT has set up a John Brattain Memorial Fund. There is a link is in the upper left-hand corner of the THT home page for those who wish to donate.
My sincerest condolences to John’s family and friends. Thanks, John, for everything.

Wow. What a shock. I’m sorry to hear that, Geoff.
My condolences to the family. Big lost to the community as well.
