tpstulane posted on gotula.net that Jason Sparks has died. RIP. I'll never forget the home run vs LSU in '99

Coach Jones asked to keep Jason and his family in our prayers. So young. Jason, RIP

My heart absolutely sank when I read this on Twitter. Sparks' HR vs LSU is in my top 5 Tulane sports moments. "Redemption, baby! Redemption!" Wish I hadn't lost the video I had of that moment.

Thinking of Jason's family and friends. Too young, too soon :(

I moved this topic to the main board, as I'm sure a lot of fans would not see it where it was. I was shocked when I heard about this a couple of weeks ago.

Very sad, and far too young. RIP, and thanks for the memories.
