    Colorado Rockies president Keli McGregor was found dead in a hotel room in Salt Lake City on Tuesday morning, according to police.

    Salt Lake City Police Det. Rick Wall said McGregor, 48, died of natural causes. He said the official cause of death will be investigated by the Salt Lake City medical examiner's office, according to The Denver Post.

    The Rockies were notified of McGregor's death by police and were planning a statement, but had no immediate comment, according to the report.

    McGregor, the team's president since 2001, had been with the Rockies front office since 1993, when he started as senior director of operations. He was promoted to senior vice president in 1996 and executive vice president in 1998.

    Wall said police were called to McGregor's hotel when a pair of team associates, traveling with him on team business, could not reach McGregor in his room and asked the hotel to check on him, according to the report.

    Police were called about 11 a.m. ET and emergency workers arrived on the scene and were unable to revive him.

    McGregor, a tight end at Colorado State, was drafted by the Denver Broncos in 1985 and played for the Broncos, Indianapolis Colts and Seattle Seahawks, according to the report.

    Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

    Holy shit. Hopefully, it won't turn out to be a David Carradine situation. R.I.P.

    very interesting. Authorities are pretty tightlipped about this, so who knows what happened.
