First-base coach Mark Budzinski daughter dies – ‘Blue Jay’ organization pays tribute

The Blue Jays announced the tragic death of Julia Budzinski, the daughter of first-base coach Mark Budzinski, on Sunday morning.

Budzinski is with his wife, Monica, and children, Josh and Lily, after leaving the team during Saturday’s game. Members of the organization expressed their love and support for the Budzinski family on Sunday.

Following Sunday’s game against the Rays at Rogers Centre, which began with a moment of silence for Julia as both teams stood in full along the foul lines, manager Charlie Montoyo began his press conference by reading a statement.

“Everyone in our clubhouse is thinking of Bud, and I know you are, too, of his wife and their children,” Montoyo said. “This tragedy reminds us what’s important in life. As a father and husband myself, my heart breaks for Bud and his family. They are in our thoughts and our prayers. Thank you for your understanding. Think of Bud and his family.”
