Rod Beck found dead in Arizona home :(

I don't know as much about baseball as my husband, but Rod Beck was one of the players i definitely knew. I had the opportunity to meet him in person a few years back and was delighted by his personality.. this is a very tragic story:(

"Beck was discovered by police officers responding to a call to his home in suburban Phoenix, police department spokesman Andy Hill said Sunday. Foul play is not suspected, though the cause of death might not be known for several days."

When we met him, he had us hold his beer and signed our baseball on his leg.. he slipped with the pen and wrote on his jeans... he laughed and said, well, these were new.. now I have to go buy some new ones...

He seemed very light hearted and it sounds like he will be just as missed by his former teamates who loved him..

remember the story of how he lived in his Winnebago while he played for the Iowa Cubs a couple years back? haha.. he will be sorely missed :(
