Minnesota Twins infield prospect Ryan Costello, 23, reportedly died of natural causes in New Zealand shortly after joining the Auckland Tuatara in the Australian Baseball League.
The body of Costello was found in his hotel room Monday and he was said to have died in his sleep.
âThe Tuatara express their deepest condolences to Ryanâs family back home in the United States and to the whole Minnesota Twins organization,â the club said in a statement.
Costello’s teammates there were said to be ânaturally devastatedâ with the news of his death, while the Twins were also stunned.
âOn behalf of the entire organization, the Twins send their most sincere condolences to Ryanâs family, friends, coaches and teammates,â the Twins said in a statement.
The Hartford, Connecticut native played minor league baseball for the Clinton Lumberjacks and the Fort Myers Miracle during the latter team’s title run.
Costello was known as a postive young man, telling Twins Daily in an interview last October that his strongest attribute is âmy ability to stay positive through tough times and understand that itâs part of the game and ups and downs are going to come.â
