Nats fans have a few former beloved players that they continue to follow and support even after leaving the Nationals. Closer Chad "Chief" Cordero is definitely one of those players.

Many of you have already heard the tragic news of Chad and Jamie Cordero's three month old daughter Tehya's recent passing.

Nats starting pitcher Matt Chico's wife, Stephanie, has organized a "Moment of Silence" to honor Chad and his family on Wednesday, December 8 from 7-10pm.  See the Facebook Event for more information. 

Please keep Chad, Jamie and Riley Cordero in your thoughts and prayers.

September 12, 2010 - December 4, 2010."

    We just lost our precious girl at the end of Jan. I'm so sorry. I know exactly what you're going through and it is so crippling. My sadness spills over, not in great heaping sobs like at first, but there are tears every day. I wish you peace and for solutions. I just regret that solutions didn't come in time for our babies.

    My sincere condolences Chad and Jamie on the loss of your precious baby. I can't begin to imagine what it must be like to lose your child like that. Your little angel will be watching over all of you until you meet again. I will remember her in my prayers.
