Reds: Minor leaguer killed, 2 injured in car accident
CINCINNATI (AP) — Pitcher Jairo Capellan was killed and two other Cincinnati Reds minor leaguers were injured in a car accident Saturday morning in the Dominican Republic, a team official said.
Dick Williams, the Reds' president of baseball operations, confirmed Capellan's death and said pitcher Raul Hernandez was in critical condition and outfielder Emilio Garcia in stable condition. The club released no details about their injuries.
ONA — The line of red-clad baseball fans stretched from the center of the Huntington Mall all the way to middle of the food court where it forked into a Y formation.
Al Kaline, a previous veterans-committee voter, won't be on the panel that determines Alan Trammell's fate Hall-of-Fame later this week.
But several of Trammell's 1980s contemporaries are on the 16-member, Modern Era committee, which could give the former Tigers shortstop a boost. Among his peers on the panel are George Brett, Rod Carew, Dennis Eckersley, Don Sutton, Dave Winfield and Robin Yount.
