Terrible news. Way too young to have that happen. My heart goes out to his family.

I think DH and Mr Macgregor worked pretty close on the new ST facility.

Diamondbacks' Hall releases statement

The Arizona Diamondbacks announced the following statement from CEO Derrick Hall on Tuesday regarding McGregor.

"This sport lost a true friend and gentleman today. Keli has quickly become one of my closest friends over the last few years. In recent months, our collaborative work and vision on creating our new spring home has made that bond even tighter. I am deeply saddened that he will not see the project upon its completion, but even more distraught over the tragic thought that this beautiful family will be without its loving husband and father. We will miss him dearly."
