1987 Spokane Indians at the mall - Terry Gilmore

Today is a sad day for baseball, of course. The Jose Fernandez accident instantly reminds fans of the Steve Olin/Tim Crews deadly boating accident, and Yankee fans of course remember Thurman Munson, another big star who died suddenly during his playing career.

Terry Gilmore pitched in the Padres organization from 1987 to 1991. 101 of his 149 games were at the AAA level, but despite the extended opportunity he never found success at that level - 24-25, 5.24 ERA - so the major leagues eluded him. A fuller account of his career can be found at The Greatest 21 Days.

He is at some kind of frozen-yogurt or soft-serve ice cream establishment, but the logo on the caps is way too small to read.
