Remembering the Late Kimera Bartee



The baseball world was shocked and saddened to hear of the untimely death of Tigers’ first base coach Kimera Bartee, who died early Tuesday morning at the age of 49. Bartee had previously worked in the Pirates’ organization for 12 years, most recently as the first base coach/outfield instructor from 2017-19.

When the news broke, mentions of Bartee’s kindness, infectious smile and love for the game of baseball and his family were all cited in the thoughts of those who knew him best. Many took to social media to say a few words about Bartee, all with similar sentiments of shock and remembrance of someone who impacted the lives of many.
