Carl Crawford has been out of Major League Baseball since finishing his career with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2016. He was DFA’d midway through the year, after famously signing a seven-year, $142 million deal with the Boston Red Sox after the 2010 season.
Unfortunately, his name is now back in the news due to some tragic circumstances. A drowning reportedly took place at his house Saturday during a small gathering, and a woman and young child tragically lost their lives.

The details are just awful, and explain how the child fell in first and the woman jumped in after. Neither was able to get out of the pool, and Crawford was unable to resuscitate the pair.

Crawford’s post-MLB career has found him running a record label, which led him to discovering (and then feuding with) Megan Thee Stallion.
The incident took place at Crawford’s house in Houston, and as of now, there are no details on how the two victims were related to the former MLB player. All we know now is that this is a tragedy, and our condolences go out to everyone affected by this situation.
