Officials suspect that #JeremyGiambi, who passed away at the age of 47 Wednesday, died by #suicide, according to TMZ.

Law enforcement officials received a call at 11:40 a.m. Wednesday and found the ex-MLB player deceased at his family home. Few additional details have been released.

Giambi played for six seasons in the #MLB from 1998 to 2003 for the Royals, Phillies, Red Sox and A’s — the latter alongside his brother Jason, a five-time All-Star. Jeremy was traded from Oakland in 2002, which was dramatized in the film “Moneyball.”

He hit 52 home runs throughout his career and had 209 RBIs. Perhaps his most famous moment came when he was thrown out at the plate in Game 3 of the 2001 ALDS by Derek Jeter during the “flip play,” in which Jeter miraculously appeared to relay the ball to home plate after the cutoff man was missed.

Giambi’s agent, Joel Wolfe, said Wednesday that his family requested “that we all respect their privacy during this difficult time.”

#JamesDonaldson notes:

Welcome to the “next chapter” of my life… being a voice and an advocate for #mentalhealthawarenessandsuicideprevention, especially pertaining to our younger generation of students and student-athletes.

Getting men to speak up and reach out for help and assistance is one of my passions. Us men need to not suffer in silence or drown our sorrows in alcohol, hang out at bars and strip joints, or get involved with drug use.

Having gone through a recent bout of #depression and #suicidalthoughts myself, I realize now, that I can make a huge difference in the lives of so many by sharing my story, and by sharing various resources I come across as I work in this space.  #http://bit.ly/JamesMentalHealthArticle
