FW: Sad News
- Forwarding this sad news, for those who are not SABR members. Doug was a
personal friend of mine and a great supporter of reasearch in general and
the baseball database in particular.

I just spoke with Carolyn Pappas, Doug Pappas' mother, and was told of the
terrible news that Doug passed away while vacationing in Big Bend National
Park in Texas. It appears that the cause was heat prostration. Doug is
survived only by his mother.
She asks that I get the word out to all his SABR friends, who are many,
since Doug did so much for the organization.
As arrangements are made, I will make them known to the SABR community.
Our sympathies go to Carolyn.
