Keli McGregor, the president of the Colorado Rockies was found dead in his hotel room at the Grand America Hotel at 9:00 a.m. this morning by Salt Lake City police. Salt Lake Det. Rick Wall stated that police “didn’t see anything suspicious,” and that McGregor “did pass away of natural causes. The official cause of death will be investigated by the Salt Lake City Medical Examiner’s Office.”

McGregor was 48.

The Rockies have released a statement:

“Words cannot describe the level of shock and disbelief that we all are feeling this morning at the loss of Keli,” team owner Charlie Monfort said. “Our thoughts, our prayers are with (McGregor’s wife) Lori and the entire family as we all try to cope and understand how such a tragic loss could occur with such a wonderful man.”

Forty-eight friggin’ years old, man. Jesus. My thoughts go out to his family and the entire Colorado Rockies organization.
