Officers suspect that Jeremy Giambi, who handed away on the age of 47 Wednesday, died by suicide, in response to TMZ.
Regulation enforcement officers acquired a name at 11:40 a.m. Wednesday and located the ex-MLB participant deceased at his household dwelling. Few extra particulars have been launched.
Giambi performed for six seasons within the MLB from 1998 to 2003 for the Royals, Phillies, Purple Sox and A’s — the latter alongside his brother Jason, a five-time All-Star. Jeremy was traded from Oakland in 2002, which was dramatized within the movie “Moneyball.”
He hit 52 dwelling runs all through his profession and had 209 RBIs. Maybe his most well-known second got here when he was thrown out on the plate in Sport 3 of the 2001 ALDS by Derek Jeter through the “flip play,” through which Jeter miraculously appeared to relay the ball to dwelling plate after the cutoff man was missed.
Giambi’s agent, Joel Wolfe, stated Wednesday that his household requested “that all of us respect their privateness throughout this troublesome time.”
