Giants coach collapses on the field

Giants coach collapses on the field
I didn't see a news article about this here yet.
Giants infield coach Takuya Kimura collapsed during pre-game practice at Mazda stadium in Hiroshima on Apr. 2.
Mainichi Daily News Article.

It's pretty shocking as he's still only 37. I wish him well, and there has been a lot of support from non-Giants fans as well over on the Japanese social networking site mixi. As far as I can tell from the latest news reports he's alive, but unconscious in the hosptial now.

As you probably read, Kimura passed away yesterday. Really sad and untimely.

Horrible news. It's been a tragic year for the NPB family - the death of Nippon Ham's Kobayashi in January, Orix's Oze in February, and now young Kimura.

Very sad for his family and the Giants team.
