Rest In Peace Jose Lima

Dodger owner Frank McCourt made the following statement today regarding the passing of former Dodger pitcher Jose Lima.

"We are shocked and saddened to learn of the tragic loss of Jose Lima. Though he was taken from us way too soon, he truly lived his life to the fullest and his personality was simply unforgettable. He had the ability to light up a room and that's exactly what he did every time I saw him. His memorable contributions to the Dodgers in 2004 and throughout baseball will always be remembered. Our deepest condolences and prayers go out to his family during this extremely difficult time."

The untimely death of pitcher Jose Lima came as huge shock to everyone. There isn't much I can say that hasn't already been said. Rest in peace Jose Lima. You will be missed.
