Red Sox Lefty Rich Hill’s Baby Dies

Red Sox lefthander Rich Hill, who spent last season with the Indians and the previous three with the Red Sox, arrived at spring training Wednesday, just a couple weeks after the death of his infant son Brooks.

Brooks was born Dec. 26 with what Hill called “multiple issues” and died Feb. 24.

“Unfortunately, he succumbed. He’s passed. He taught us a lot of things. Unfortunately, things didn’t work out,” Hill told the AP.

Hill arrived in a Fort Myers with his wife Caitlin and their 2-year-old son Brice.

“My wife has been extremely strong,” he told the AP. “We’re going to enjoy our time here and obviously make the most of the opportunity that’s here to play baseball.”

Hill signed a minor-league deal with the team this offseason, and will be competing for a spot with lefties Andrew Miller, Chris Capuano, Craig Breslow and Drake Britton, among others.

Our thoughts are with Hill and his family during this tough time.
