"JT", a HSBBW old timer, passed away this afternoon after a tragic accident in Lynchburg, VA. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers as they cope with his loss.

I don't post often, but read alot, and know that so many of you are friends.

JT passed away while throwing BP on the baseball field at Lynchburg College. He was a kind man, who shared so much knowledge and passion here.

Does anyone know anything more about this?
I have checked the site for Liberty where JT worked and Lynchburg where Jeff Jr. goes to school and there isn't anything posted.
If anyone has any further information, please share with us.
Oh my God !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just found out about this. I am numb. I have met Jeff Sr. personally and cannot believe this has happened cry

I met Jeff last year in Lynchburg. Him and I have been very close. He has been very supportive of my son. Can you please post more details.

Oh, Lord Dan, I cannot believe it! He just posted today. Do you know what happened. I'm just absolutely in shock!!!!!!!!!! cry cry cry
"It seems the older the boys get...the faster the time flies and the less time we have to enjoy their ride."

This is the conclusion of an email I received on 4/20/09 from our wonderful and caring friend, and my DIII sharing cyber parent, JT.
For some reason, I think Jeff's spirit would want his message to be shared.
As I read it, and read CD's post, I am overwhelmed with grief. My thoughts are with Jeff's family in hopes they will find comfort in knowing how much he loved them, and especially with Jeff, Jr. and JT's Dad
dad - I agree with your sentiments. JT was a person I talked with many times. He thought more highly of his wife than almost any man I've ever known. My thoughts and prayeres are with MC. I just can't imagine what she or Jeff Jr are thinking. I can't believe this myself. I just can't believe it.
Oh my god, I just can't believe it, this is getting to be too much. I just can not imagine how JT junior must be right now.

I am so sad, my heart breaks for his family.

JT, one of the nicest sweetest persons I have met here. His dad is a big Cardinals fan, so he was always inquiring about how DK was doing and a huge fan.

I am at a loss for words.
I just cannot speak. I will pray for JT, his son and his family. So sad, so terribly sad. JT was one of the most positive, cheerleading-to-others and optimistic posters on this site.

I'm so sorry. Frown

This is so very very tragic. I'm stunned to read the news about Jeff. My heart hurts for Jeff Jr. and all of the Taylors. Keep them all in your prayers folks.
I can not find the words. My thoughts and prayers go to JT's family. My heart aches for his son.

There are to many angels in heaven tonight.

That was an unbelievably gracious post. My thoughts and prayers continue for you and your family deldad. There are indeed too many angels in heaven this evening cry
I just put this picture in a post about rainouts. But I feel it's also appropriate when I think about Nick Adenhart, Harry Kalas, Mark Fidrych, Brandon Villalobos, and now, Jeff Taylor. **EDIT** please forgive me for leaving out Mary Ann (futurebackmom)



Will it ever end?

JT, one of the nicest friends here on the hsbbweb.
Just, sad, sad, sad. Prayers being said, love being sent to the Taylors.
biggerpapi, you picture describes exactly how i feel right now.

Lets not forget the Missouri boy, Patrick Clegg.


I am so sorry for all the losses. I just seems to not end.
My prayers and thought for this family. It seems so unbelievable the amt of loss in the last few weeks from people we know on this site. God Bless everyone and God bless his family.
This is so heartbreaking. Jeff was a wonderful man. My very deepest sympathies to his family.

My deepest sympathy to Jeff's family.
Words cannot begin to express my sorrow, goodbye old friend... you will be missed.

There are no words. It just aches.

All my prayers and empathy to Jeff's wife, his son, and all those who loved him. Our little community is poorer for these tragic losses.

I just can not fathom this. Beyond belief. As other's have said, I'm absolutely numb. My prayers go out to JT's family.
I just wish it all would end. I've been trying to find the words for the past hour. As I was just telling a member via Facebook, we don't realize how small a community the game of baseball is until something like this happens.

Here we are people from all over the United States and even from around the world remembering Mr. Taylor tonight because he opened his heart and his life to all of us on this site as many of us do on here each and every day. These communities become tight groups and something like this just tears us all apart.

I just hope this period of tragedy ends soon. I will be headed to bed here soon; I have a feeling I'll cry myself to sleep tonight..
