A former college tennis star died of a heart attack at 31 after she suddenly collapsed at home and was rushed to the hospital. Despite efforts to perform CPR and save her life, doctors determined Lilly Kimbell had a massive heart attack. The lack of oxygen left her brain unable to regain consciousness, and she was removed from life support. Kimbell was one of the most successful tennis players in collegiate history. She won a staggering 197 victories, including 109 in doubles and 88 in singles. She reached the NCAA Quarterfinals four times.

Baltimore Orioles announcer Kevin Brown was reportedly suspended for seemingly benign on-air comments discussing the team’s former losing ways.

Awful Announcing reported Monday that the Orioles suspended Brown indefinitely after a July series against the Tampa Bay Rays in which he made the comments in question during a pregame segment July 23. He hasn’t been on the air since July 26. Brown was suspended and that his ban was because of his July 23 commentary. Here is the segment that reportedly got Brown suspended: “It’s been a minute,” Brown said. “The Orioles split a two-gamer with the Rays in June. They had lost their last 15 series here at Tropicana Field. You have to go back to when our now-colleague Brad Brach picked up the win in the series finale June 25, 2017 — the last time the Orioles won a series here in St. Pete.

“Already gone 3-2 at the Trop this year after winning three of 18 the previous three years combined.”

Brown made the comments while graphics on the broadcast supported the stats he cited, showing that the Orioles were 0-15-1 in their previous 16 series against the Rays. The same stats were cited in the team’s game notes that day. A source told the Athletic that the Orioles suspended Brown because ownership thought his comments made the team sound cheap, which the team has denied and said he’ll be back in the booth soon. Yikes. Orioles announcer Kevin Brown reportedly suspended for broadcasting truth about team’s former losing ways – LINK
