49-Yr-Old Detroit Tigers First Base Coach Suddenly Collapses and Dies

49-year-old Detroit Tigers first base coach suddenly collapsed and died while visiting his father in Omaha, Nebraska.

The cause of death at this time is unknown.

TMZ reported:

Kimera Bartee — Detroit Tigers first base coach and former MLB outfielder — has died, the team announced in a statement on Tuesday.

He was just 49 years old.

Tigers GM Al Avila confirmed the tragic news, saying … “All of us in the Tigers baseball family were shocked and saddened to learn that first base coach Kimera Bartee suddenly passed away on Monday at the age of 49.”

“Throughout his time in our organization as both a player and coach, Kimera was known as a kind soul but intense competitor who did his best every day to elevate those around him to do great things.”

The cause of death is not known at this time, but Bartee was visiting his father in Omaha, when he suddenly collapsed.

In November, 45-year-old Julio Lugo, a former Red Sox shortstop, died of an apparent heart attack.
