(AP) — who covered the Red Sox and the rest of the sport for more than three decades, died Thursday after collapsing outside the team’s spring training clubhouse. He was 62.The newspaper said Cafardo appeared to have an embolism. The team’s medical staff responded quickly but was unable to revive him.“The world is darker today without @nickcafardo. His fairness, love for the game and great heart made fans of us all,” baseball star-turned-broadcaster Alex Rodriguez wrote on Twitter . “We will miss you from field to booth, Nick.”The Red Sox said they were saddened by Cafardo’s death and would find the appropriate time to honor his legacy.“For over three decades, Nick was a fixture at Fenway Park and throughout ballparks across the country. His coverage was as consistent as the game itself,” the team said in a statement. “The Cafardo family will always be a part of the Boston baseball family.”Cafardo joined the Globe in 1989 from The (Quincy) Patriot Ledger, where he had been on the baseball beat.

The newspaper said it was his day off, but “Cafardo’s love of baseball and commitment to his craft compelled him to report to JetBlue Park.”“Nick was one of the best people to ever walk through our doors — generous with his time and insights, immensely knowledgeable, deeply devoted to the Globe,” editor Brian McGrory said in the paper’s obituary.“He had a view of the Red Sox and the game on a national scale that is virtually unrivaled. For those reasons [b][url=http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-ketel-marte-jersey]Ketel Marte Jersey[/url][/b] , he was one of our most read writers, constantly attracting followers near and far, his weekly baseball notes column being destination reading for tens of thousands of people.”In addition to his coverage for the paper, Cafardo also wrote a book on the beginning of the Patriots dynasty, “The Impossible Team: The Worst to First Patriots’ Super Bowl Season.” He also wrote “If These Walls Could Talk” with Red Sox second baseman and broadcaster Jerry Remy and “Inside Pitch: Playing and Broadcasting the Game I Love,” with Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Glavine.“The Major League Baseball and sports journalism communities suffered a tremendous loss today,” the Players Association said in a statement. “ At the Ringer, Zach Kram posits that if the Royals can’t be good, they may as well be fast:It’s important to note [b][url=http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-david-]http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-zack-greinke-jersey[/url][/b] , first, that this approach won’t actually produce more runs than a typical..."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Royals Trade Rumors & Hot StoveRoyals Minor Leagues & ProspectsRoyals Review ClassicRoyals Review Users GuideThe 100 Greatest Royals Of All TimeRoyals RumblingsRoyals Rumblings - News for December 20, 2019New,209commentsposits that if the Royals can’t be good, they may as well be fast:At BP, Ginny Searle breaks down the Terrance Gore signing:Kings of Kauffman’s Morgan Vogels does a minor-league signing round-up.Could a team of non-tendered players this offseason outhit the Orioles (or Royals)?Major League Baseball and the Cuban Baseball Federation have agreed to a posting system that now just awaits Presidential approval.Guess what made Gizmodo’s top ten list of best movies of the year?Trey Hillman alert.Sheryl Ring alerts us to the downside of the opener.Addison Russell’s ex is speaking out, and it’s pretty horrifying.Since you really need to know what Caruthers’s backstory was in Mandy, here’s an interview with Bill Duke talking a lot about the movie.Are you holding onto your butts?
