With great sadness we report the passing of Ramon Vincente Santiago early Monday morning. Vince was 82, an inspiration to all as he battled Parkinsons the last 20 years, yet still worked hard to be able to play his beloved Beisbol up until 3 years ago. He was hospitalized last evening with a vicious septic bacterial infection ... and he passed on to his next starting assignment less than 6 hours later. Please keep his wife Myra and family in your prayers.
