Colonials remember teammate Thomas Shea
Alabama native played on the 2000 WestConn team
The Colonial baseball family suffered a horrible loss New Years day morning, when Thomas Shea passed away in his sleep in his home in Gilbert Arizona. Tom was originally from Alabama, and a memeber of Coach Susi's first squad in 2000. Along with best friend and Bama mate Jake Kirkland (2000 team MVP), Tom was a catcher who hit .259 that season with a double, home run and 11 RBI. He was an outgoing and friendly teammate who will be missed by all who knew him and loved him. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. He will always be remebered by his Colonial family.
