Some sad news to report from Hickory.
Outfielder Eduard Pinto was called to return to Venezuela on Wednesday as his expectant child with his fiancée Maria was born prematurely on Wednesday.
Their son, Gael, suffered from severe respiratory issues and eventually passed away on Sunday.
Members of the Crawdads Connection – which for those that don’t know serves as a support group for the players during the season – have organized a GoFundMe page to help Eduard and Maria with their expenses.
