Former White Sox Pitcher Daniel Webb Dies In ATV Accident In Tennessee
Former Chicago White Sox pitcher Daniel Webb lost his life following a tragic accident in Tennessee on Saturday.
The 28-year-old died in an ATV accident, which was confirmed by both the White Sox and Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis on Sunday. There were few details released—only that he suffered head trauma and the crash was an accident.
“Daniel left many friends within the Chicago White Sox organization, and we are all shocked and stunned by the news of last night’s terrible accident,” the White Sox said in a statement Sunday. “He was a terrific young man with a full life ahead of him.”

Three other people, including Webb’s wife, were also hurt in that accident. Two of them are currently in serious condition, but are expected to survive.
Webb appeared in one major-league game in 2016 before he was released by the Sox in November. He remained a free agent during this past season.
