MLB’s Susanne Hilgefort Killed in Plane Crash
Susanne Hilgefort, one of Major League Baseball’s longest-tenured employees and a key figure in the leaps forward for modern baseball broadcasting, was one of three passengers, along with her husband, Michael Mydlarz, who died in a small plane crash on Saturday near Albany, NY. She was 48.
“Susanne was a warm and caring person who lived life to the fullest,” Commissioner Rob Manfred says. “She was an avid world traveler who loved spending time outdoors. When indoors at 245 Park, Susanne always brought joy to those around her with her enormous smile, energy, and positive outlook day in and day out. She made a lasting contribution to our game and will be sorely missed.”
