The Kansas City Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura and the former Cleveland Indian third baseman Andy Marte both expired on Sunday. Ventura was 25 and Marte was 33. In a bitter twist of fate, Martes final MLB game was against the Royals, whose starting pitcher that day in August 2014 was Ventura.

He facilitated the Royals to overpowered the New York Mets in the 2015 World Series and too played in the Fall Classic in 2014 during his rookie season. In the 2014 World Series Ventura was one of the Royals better players, highlighted by his seven shutout innings in Game 6. The Royal lost the series 4-3 to the San Francisco Giants.

Ventura joined the Royal in 2013 and had a 38 -3 1 record with the team. Our devotions right now are with Yordanos family as we sorrow this young mans legislating, said the Royals general manager, Dayton Moore, in a statement issued. He was so young and so talented, full of youth cheerfulnes and ever brought a smile to everyone he interacted with. We will get through this as its organisation, but right now is a time to sorrow and celebrate living conditions of Yordano.

Ventura had an unlikely start to his vocation. He left school at 14 and was working on a construction gang when a member of his family told her all about neighbourhood baseball tryouts. He was good enough to secure a lieu in the Royals Dominican academy, which was the beginning of a vocation that they are able to take him to the World Series twice.

On Sunday, two of the team-mates who played alongside him in the Royals championship paid tribute to Ventura, whose nickname was Ace. I love you Ace. I dont know what to say other than Im going to miss you a lot. RIP ACE, tweeted third baseman Mike Moustakas.
