Reckless Driving:  In late January, 2017, Yordano Ventura, age 25, was killed in a motor vehicle accident while visiting his home in the Dominican Republic.  According to Dominican police, Ventura‘s one car accident occured on the Juan Adrián highway near San Jose de Ocoa. Ventura was alone in the vehicle.  The cause of the collision was not reported.

Reckless Driving: Ventura was known for his lightening like fast ball and his fearlessness against much larger players from other professional baseball teams.  Ventura was an essential element of the pennant victories for his Kansas City Royals and the 2015 World Series.  Two years earlier, Oscar Taveras, another rising young baseball star, was killed in a traffic crash in the DR.  Taveras and his girlfriend were killed near Puerto Plata.  Ventura was pitching in the 2014 World Series and had Taveras‘ initials and number on his baseball cap honoring Taveras.  Coincidentally Andy Marte a retired major league baseball player also died in a vehicle crash in the DR several days earlier than Ventura’s passing.

Reckless Driving: Ventura’s tough attitude often drew unwelcome attention from batters.  On one occasion, Manny Machado charged the pitcher’s mound; on another Mike Trout engaged Ventura in a tense stare down.  Ventura earned over one million dollars in his second season of a five year contract with a twenty-three million dollar guarantee.  Ventura came a long way from a 16 year old signed for $28,000.00 as a project.
