Kentucky says Ben Jordan, a right-handed pitcher who played last season on the men's basketball team because of a shortage of players, has died. The school announced Jordan's death on Monday in a release and a Kentucky baseball spokesman said coach Nick Mingione has spoken with the player's family. Mingione said in a release Tuesday that the program was devastated to learn of Jordan's passing.
