Doug Pappas (1961-2004)
by Larry Mahnken

One of the most eloquent voices in the field of Major League Baseball labor relations, Doug Pappas, passed away from heat stroke while vacationing at Big Bend National Park.

This is a terrible loss for all baseball fans, and I am personally stricken with an overwhelming grief. Doug was one of the most influential writers for me in the past three years, and without him I would have never become as interested in sabermetrics or baseball labor relations as I am now, and probably would not be writing this weblog.

My heart is broken tonight. Rest in peace, Doug. You will never be replaced.
