The sports world is in mourning.

Matty Alou passed away in his native Dominican Republic. He was 72.

He died of diabetes complications, according to his former Dominican team. The Giants also confirmed his death and said he had been sick for several years.

Matty was once part of an all-Alou outfield for the San Francisco Giants with brothers Felipe and Jesus and became the 1966 National League batting champion with the Pirates.

Our condolences.
