His teammates came to comfort him as he cried. Reports state that later on when he asked about an update he was told that she was rushed to a nearby hospital.
After the game, Almora said, “Right now, I’m just praying and I’m speechless. I’m at a loss of words. Being a father, two boys … but God willing, I’ll be able to have a relationship with this little girl for the rest of my life. But just prayers right now, and that’s all I really can control.”
