I want to let all of THT’s readers know that one of our most prolific writers and favorite people, John Brattain, just passed away.
Many of us got to know John through the Baseball Think Factory, where his good humor was always on display. John joined the THT writing team more than four years ago, and he further honed his extraordinary wit, humanity and sense of fun every week on our site (and elsewhere). For a while, he even contributed twice a week. He was one of the people who made THT a truly rewarding experience for all of us.
John is survived by a wife and two teenage daughters. As information about his service becomes available, we’ll pass it along.
