Danny Clyburn, 1998 Leaf Rookies and Stars #254

I don't know what to say about this one. I certainly wish I never had to write about an ex-Oriole getting shot to death, especially at age 37. Danny Clyburn was murdered in his hometown of Lancaster, SC early this morning. He leaves behind two children, ages 11 and 17. Deepest sympathies to Danny's family and friends.

Clyburn, the Pirates' second-round draft pick in 1992, made his big league debut with the Orioles in September 1997 and hit .280 with the team in an 11-game stint the following year. His first career home run was hit off of Tim Wakefield in Fenway Park on September 25, 1998.

May he rest in peace. Still a young man. Awful news.
