Victor Sanchez (1995-2015)

Victor

The Mariners lost a member of the family on Saturday night as Venezuelan prospect Victor Sanchez succumbed to injuries sustained in mid February. He was just 20 years old.

Victor may be gone, but not forgotten, as various members of the baseball family had their way of remembering him on a tough day.

Greg Johns has the story of Jabari Henry, who hit a home run in yesterday’s game and said “one hundred percent, that was for him. All of today was all for him.”

Diario Panorama’s Augusto Cardenas checked in with Felix Hernandez about the passing of a young man who left us too soon.
