Former MLB infielder Sean Burroughs passed away at the age of 43 after collapsing during his son’s Little League game.

Sean Burroughs, a former baseball player, passed away on Thursday. He collapsed while taking his son to a Little League baseball game. He was only 43 years old. Sean was helping out as a coach for his 6-year-old son, Knox. He fell down and passed out next to his car. Even though people tried to help him by pressing on his chest, he didn’t wake up. His mom, Debbie, said he died because his heart stopped.

Sean loved baseball ever since he was a kid. He was really good at it, leading his team to win two championships. When he was 21, he got picked by a big team called the San Diego Padres. Before he played in the big leagues, he won a Gold Medal at the Olympics in 2000. Sean played in the big leagues for seven years, mostly with the Padres.

His best year was in 2003 when he did really well as the Padres’ third baseman. After that, he played for a few more teams, but he didn’t stay in the big leagues for long. He had a hard time with addiction and took a break from baseball for a while. But he came back and played again for the Arizona Diamondbacks and then the Minnesota Twins, but only for a short time.
