Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan tweeted his condolences for Mo Gaba and said he was “absolutely heartbroken” by the news of his passing on Tuesday night. Gaba was 14-years-old.
Absolutely heartbroken by the passing of Mo Gaba, a bright light who brought joy to all who knew him and hope to everyone who heard his story. Our prayers go out to his family and loved ones. #MoStrong pic.twitter.com/O30flCokGo— Governor Larry Hogan (@GovLarryHogan) July 29, 2020
Gaba inspired the city of Baltimore with an infectious laugh and joyous personality, both of which rubbed off on fans and the city’s sports teams. Hogan, the 62nd governor of Maryland, assumed office in 2015.
Once news broke of his passing, former and current players took to Twitter to offer their love and support for Gaba, who was elected to the Orioles Hall of Fame on Tuesday afternoon shortly before his passing.
Gaba had an impact on everyone in not only Baltimore but the state of Maryland too. And his impact not only reached members of the sports community, but all the way to the governor, too.
