On Thursday, the San Francisco Giants said that Tim Lincecum's wife, Cristin Coleman, had died. Tim Lincecum won the Cy Young Award in 2008.
The team told Lincecum, his wife's family, her friends, and her students that they were sorry for their loss.
A death notice in the San Mateo Daily Journal in July said that Coleman was the principal of Washington Elementary School in Burlingame, California,
and that she died on June 27 after a fight with cancer. She was reportedly surrounded by her family and died peacefully.
Brandon Crawford's wife, Jalynne Crawford, said that Coleman was "a great person" who touched her in many ways.
Coleman's death also explains why Lincecum wasn't on the Giants' list of guests for their 2012 World Series reunion on Saturday. This is sad news.
Lincecum is known for keeping his personal life private. In fact, no one knew he was married until the Giants announced it on Thursday.
However, he has known Coleman since at least 2012, when they celebrated his second World Series win together.
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) — In a tweet on Thursday, the San Francisco Giants said that Tim Lincecum's wife, Cristin Coleman, had died.
The Giants said that Coleman was loved by the team because she was around when Lincecum was a pitcher for the Giants from 2007 to 2016.
