RIP, John Brattain

I am 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:

A memorial service as a celebration of John’s life will be held at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 4183 Old Highway 2, Belleville, Ontario on Saturday April 4 at 2:00 pm.

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.

Best Regards,
