When Tim Lincecum has mainly disappeared from the public eye considering the fact that retiring from baseball, the lovable and eccentric Entire world Collection champion has privately been dealing with individual tragedy.
Lincecum’s spouse, Cristin Coleman, a principal at a Peninsula elementary faculty, died in June immediately after a yearslong fight with cancer.
Although the information of Coleman’s dying was claimed at the time — a beloved figure herself at Burlingame University District’s Washington Elementary School — the Giants firm on Thursday verified her connection to Lincecum even though mourning her decline.
“The Giants have been really saddened to learn of the passing of Tim Lincecum’s spouse, Cristin Coleman,” the club wrote on Twitter. “Our deepest condolences go out to Tim, Cristin’s family members and all those whose lives she touched as a pal and teacher. She was beloved by the Giants family members and her caring and authentic spirit touched these of us who were fortunate sufficient to know her in the course of her and Timmy’s many years with us.”
Coleman and Lincecum were not too long ago married, according to a Giants spokesperson. She rode along with him in the Giants’ 2012 Environment Collection parade.
