This is just incredibly sad news to report.
Cristin Coleman, the wife of Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum, died earlier this year, the team announced Thursday.
“The Giants were extremely saddened to learn of the passing of Tim Lincecum’s wife, Cristin Coleman,” the Giants said in a statement. “Our deepest condolences go out to Tim, Cristin’s family and all those whose lives she touched as a friend and teacher.
“She was beloved by the Giants family and her caring and genuine spirit touched those of us who were fortunate enough to know her during her and Timmy’s years with us.”
Coleman passed away following her battle with cancer. The San Mateo Daily Journal reported Coleman, a principal, passed away in late June while surrounded by family and friends.
“During her illness, Cristin never expressed fear, anger, or self-pity, but she was deeply sad to be leaving all of us so soon and for causing us to grieve,” her parents wrote, according to the Journal. Cristin Coleman’s parents, Randy and Sue Coleman, said she was “a beautiful human being who touched so many hearts.”
The 38-year-old Lincecum was a two-time Cy Young winner and beloved figure who won three World Series with the Giants last decade.
