Sean Burroughs Death: Two-time LLBWS Champion died unexpectedly at age 43

Sean Burroughs, a two-time winner of the Little League Baseball World Series and the son of former Major Leaguer Jeff Burroughs, went away unexpectedly at the age of 43 while coaching his kid’s Little League game. Little League® International expresses its condolences to Sean’s family and friends.

Sean made history by becoming the first American-born player to throw back-to-back no-hitters in the Little League Baseball World Series when he was a toddler. He went on to lead his Long Beach (California) Little League club to back-to-back titles in 1992 and 1993, making history as the first league in the United States to accomplish this feat.

While Sean was participating in both of those historic runs, he was able to relive those moments with his father, Jeff, serving as his coach. Sean went on to hit.600 during his performance in the World Series during his run in 1993, during which he recorded a then-record 16 strikeouts as part of his back-to-back no-hitters.

Following his outstanding performance in Little League, Sean went on to be selected by the San Diego Padres with the ninth overall pick in the Major League Baseball Draft in 1998. When he participated in the All-Star Futures Game in 2000, he was awarded the Most Valuable Player award. After making his debut with the Padres in 2002, he then went on to play with the club for a total of four seasons, during which time he hit a single that won the game in his very first home game.

In addition to playing for the Tampa Bay Rays, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Minnesota Twins for a total of three

Just recently got back home after spending some time out of state taking care of family business. Late last night/earlier today, former SD Padre, and AZ Diamondback Sean Burroughs passed away coaching his son’s baseball team. Never fun hearing about former players passing while so young. – said NL West Trash Talk in recent post paying tribute to him
