The year 2021 has been extremely difficult on professional athletes, as it seems like this year more than ever there have been athletes dying left and right. Whether it be the MLB, NFL, NBA or NHL, it seems every couple of days either a present or past athlete has died.
Unfortunately, the latest news in deceased players comes from the Houston Astros organization. It was announced today that former Houston Astros Hall of fame starting pitcher J.R. Richard passed away.

See what she had to say on the subject below.
