    Scott played third base for the Pads back in 2001. I remember going to a game with my parents and seeing him make an awesome solo double play at third. Pretty crazy...

    EDIT: NEVERMIND! Different guy... maybe Scott's brother?

    Terrible. So young. Very sad. Life can be so unexpected and fleeting...I guess that's why we have to just try and live as happily and fully as we can...

    I'm sure the family is devastated.

    I think it would be hard to deal with if you were the one that swung that bat.

    That's what I was thinking :(...but it's one of those random freak occurrences that happen infrequently in life...no one's fault and no one could have predicted it...I hope the batter is not beating himself up...any other day it would have just been a foul ball. You know he must feel terrible though.

    Jeff Kent just tied the all-time record for hitting doubles...
