This is the story of our friend Jeremy Giambi who unfortunately took his life on February 9, 2022.
Jeremy was an amazing friend, mentor, uncle, son and brother, and yes he was a Major League Baseball player. For the last three years Jeremy was a hitting instructor at PFA Baseball, in Claremont, California.
He had found his niche, he enjoyed mentoring the kids he taught. He was one of the busiest coaches in the facility. But that didn’t take away from the time he spent with them. He aways had time to get into a poignant discussion over the mechanics of hitting and how that related to life.
Mental health is so fragile. It can sneak up on us or our friends quietly. It can hit so quickly and hard we may think there is no way to help.
