The Colorado Rockies president, Keli McGregor was found dead this morning in his Salt Lake City hotel room.

He was there on Rockies business.

The Salt Lake City police department does not suspect foul play and believes that McGregor died of natural causes.
McGregor had been with the club since its inception in 1993. According to the Denver Post he was the senior director of operations before being promoted to senior vice president in 1996 and executive vice president in 1998 and finally president in October of 2001.

McGregor has strong ties to Colorado. He went to college at Colorado State University before being drafted by the Broncos in 1985.

At just 48 years old, McGregor is survived by his wife Lori and his four children.

It is undoubtedly a sad day for the Rockies organization.
