The wife of Tim Lincecum — one of MLB’s greatest pitchers of all time — has sadly passed away… the San Francisco Giants announced Thursday night.
She was only 38 years old.
Cristin Colemanwho dated Lincecum for years, died after a battle with cancer in late June … but it hadn’t been widely reported until the Giants mourned his loss in a series of tweets on Thursday.
“The Giants are extremely saddened to learn of the passing of Tim Lincecum’s wife, Cristin Coleman,” the team wrote. “Our deepest condolences go out to Tim, Cristin’s family and everyone whose lives she touched as a friend and teacher.”
“She was loved by the Giants family and her caring and sincere spirit touched those of us who were lucky enough to know her during the years she spent with us.”
According to San Mateo Daily DiaryColeman – an elementary school teacher and principal – died “peacefully” on June 27, surrounded by his family.
Coleman’s parents, according to the outlet, said in a statement at the time of her death that she “was the light of our lives, a beautiful human being who touched so many hearts.”
Lincecum, who has rarely been seen since retiring from baseball after the 2016 season, has yet to publicly comment on the loss.
