Tom Morrison passes away

Tom Morrison, the father of Marlins outfielder Logan Morrison, passed away on Wendesday night after battling lung cancer.

Tom was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer on April 17. A couple of months later, Logan was promoted from Triple-A New Orleans to the Marlins.

Due to health reasons, Tom initially wasn’t able to attend any of his son’s games in person. In late August, however, he was cleared to travel, and he watched the Marlins face the Mets at Citi Field.

On his Twitter account, Logan posted the death of his father on Thursday morning.

“Shortly after 9 p.m. last night, my hero, Thomas Morrison, passed away,” Logan wrote. “To the world he may have been just a somebody, but to this somebody he was my world.”

Logan was able to spend Thanksgiving with his parents at the family home in Slidell, La.

According to the Palm Beach Post, Logan will be hosting “LoMo’s Camp 4 Cure” kid camp to benefit the American Lung Association. The camp is scheduled to be in Jupiter, Fla., on Jan. 8-9.

I feel horrible for your loss Logan and I hope that in time your heart can heal and you can move forward with your life. I in a way went through a similar situation with my father and he was lucky enough to have his cancer caught in time. So I can only imagine your pain but I am sure without a doubt in my mind that your father was proud of you and loved you very much and is now looking down on you with a smile on his face. I wish the best for you and your family Logan god bless you.
