Yordano Ventura, the Kansas City Royals 25-year-old star died in a car accident.

He was a fierce competitor always willing to challenge hitters inside, then deal with the ramifications when they decide to charge the mound. Quickly, he became a fan favorite as Kansas City embraced baseball once again.

The Royals confirmed Ventura’s death in an official statement.

“Obviously our prayers go out to Yordano’s family, all his friends, his teammates, our fans and everybody throughout the baseball community,”

Royals general manager Dayton Moore said on a conference call Sunday afternoon.

“Everybody with our team and our organization is hurting deeply. This is certainly something that puts everything into strong perspective. It’s a reminder that nobody is guaranteed tomorrow.”

Also Sunday, former major league infielder Andy Marte died in a separate car accident in the Dominican Republic. Metropolitan traffic authorities said he died about 95 miles north of Santo Domingo.
