April 12, 2019Apr 12, 2019

The Chicago Cubs organization is in mourning today after the loss of one of their former players. They have just announced their former pitcher has passed away.

According to reports, Scott Sanderson, the right-hander who helped the Chicago Cubs make two playoff appearances and was a member of four postseason teams during a 19-year career, has died. He was 62-years-old.

Sanderson's cause of death has yet to be determined. His family confirmed the sad news.

Sanderson had a long and successful career with the Cubs and later went on to work as an agent. He was remembered fondly by all who knew him.

“What today’s players owe to Scott is both incalculable and largely unknown to them,” former players’ association chief operating officer Gene Orza said. “It was Scott, more than any other player, whose message to his contemporaries both captured what was at stake in the great strike of 1994 and alerted them to their responsibility: ‘Who among us wants to leave to the players who come after him less than what he received from the players who have come before him?’ Those of us who worked closely with Scott will never forget him. The players he leaves behind never can.”

Scott played for many teams during his career. He was from Chicago and was always considered a Cub above all others. During his career he also played for the Yankees, Angels, Giants, and White Sox.

Scott is survived by his family. Please join us in sending prayers to our Father for their comfort and healing during this sad time.
