Rheal Comier passed away this past Monday March 8th due to cancer. He was 53.

Cormier had a stellar pitching career in MLB spanning 16 seasons with five different clubs, St. Louis, Boston, Montreal, Philadelphia and Cincinnati.

Comier was 71-64 lifetime in MLB with a 4.03 ERA hi-lighted by the amazing 2003 season with the Phillies where Cormier went 8-0 with just a 1.70 ERA.

Comier loved the game so, edivdence through his career after a player. Our own Eddie Michels captured Comier in ahppy moments with the Phillies mowing down some fantasy campers making them live it out as realistically as possible. Back in 2017 Cormier faced four different squads of fanstasy campers at the Phillies Phantasy Camp at Bright House Field in Clearwater former Canadian major league pitcher Rheal Cormier threw 12 shutout innings.  Afterwards Cormier said, “If my shoulder hadn’t gone out when I was 40 I would still be pitching today.”
