Mo Gaba was 14 years old, and – despite living with cancer since he was only 9 months old – lived his life to the fullest. His cancer had come and gone throughout his short life, and it sadly took his eye sight rather quickly. Despite not being able to ever watch a baseball game and football game, he still loved everything about the Orioles and Ravens. The Orioles honored him frequently on the field, and he was a regular in the stands at Camden Yards.

The young man was all that is good about humanity, and his loss is devastating to the team and the fans who loved him, too. Rest in peace, Mo Gaba. We at Birds Watcher offer our condolences to Gaba’s mother, Sonsy. #MoStrong
