A freshman pitcher at Division II Texas A&M-Kingsville was found dead Sunday morning at the bottom of a stairwell at a local apartment complex.
Travis Madden, a native of Inez, Texas, had reportedly left an off-campus party the night before and walked toward his on-campus dorm. Police were not aware of any connection between Madden and the apartment complex where he was found, according to the Victoria (Texas) Advocate. The police will continue to investigate pending the results of an autopsy.
"This is something you don't have a script for," coach Jason Gonzales told the Advocate. "It's been a very emotional day."
In other baseball news at small colleges in Texas, the Brownsville Herald reported that NAIA Texas-Brownsville will shut down its baseball program after this season. Texas-Brownsville and Texas Southmost College have had an educational partnership, but the impending end of that arrangement will split the student body in half, leaving half the amount of athletic fees to support the programs at UTB, according to the paper.
