The baseball world is still reeling after the stunning death early Sunday morning of Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura. Ventura brought an infectious energy to the baseball diamond, wearing his emotions on his sleeve for better and for worse. But to many, particularly on the Royals, he was like a brother, and they responded to the death of their brother with sorrow and memories.

ACE I love you my brother. I'm in disbelief and don't know what to say. I love you ACE

Others around baseball shared their grief as well.

Miguel Cabrera tweets "I can't believe it. Two friends in one day."

And Royals fans poured out their hearts and showed their love for Yordano.

Rest in peace, Yordano. You will be missed.
