The Major League Baseball lost one of its all-time greatest players on Friday when longtime New York Mets star catcher John Stearns passed away at the age of 71.
On Monday morning, MLB insider and reporter Jon Heyman of the New York Post tweeted his prediction of Stearns' doom.
Stearns mostly played catcher with the Mets, but he also occasionally played third base and a decent starting position for the team.
He spent ten seasons with New York between the lengthy years of 1975 and 1984, and during that time, he won the Elite Player award four times, in the years 1977, 1979, 1980, and 1982.
The four-time Elite performer finished his career with the Mets with 696 hits, 312 RBIs, and 46 home runs, boasting a.260 career batting average.
