College baseball pitcher dies after complications from Tommy John surgery

Baek, 20, who recently completed his freshman season with George Mason University, died on June 12, according to the university’s athletics department.

“We are devastated by the passing of Sang,” George Mason baseball head coach Bill Brown said. “Sang was an incredible teammate who was loved by everyone associated with Mason baseball. He will be missed and forever cherished in our hearts. Right now, our thoughts are with Sang’s family at this unbearably difficult time.”

Brad Edwards, George Mason’s director of athletics, said Baek embodied all the qualities of a student-athlete. “He was an excellent student, dedicated teammate and friend to so many,” Edwards said. “We are committed to providing support and resources to Sang’s teammates and all those in the Mason family who loved him.”

Baek, a native of Salisbury, Maryland, appeared in seven games for the Patriots in his freshman season.
