We announce with great sadness the tragic passing of Mr. Simeon Grullon
A little over 2 weeks ago the Grullon family was in tears of joy after Deivi signed a contract on July 2nd with the Philadelphia Phillies. His father was the catalyst in Deivi’s development as a ball player, he being a former catcher dedicated his life trying to guide his son on the right track, playing an admirable role in helping Deivi achieve his goal to become a professional ball player. Yesterday afternoon Simeon Grullon was pronounced dead at a local hospital in Bonao, D.R. after being struck by a vehicle on the shoulder of the freeway while on his motorcycle. Simeon was a hard working honest man who lived for Deivi and his family everyday of his life. Our thoughts, prayers and support are with Deivi and the rest of his family during this difficult time.
