20 Years Ago Today -- Little Lake Nellie

Jamie Squire

20 years ago today, Cleveland Indians pitchers Steve Olin and Tim Crews were killed in a boating accident that also seriously injured pitcher Bob Ojeda

Twenty years ago today, two Cleveland Indians pitchers -- Tim Crews and Steve Olin -- were killed in a boating accident on Little Lake Nellie. Pitcher Bob Ojeda was seriously injured in that accident, but survived.

I remember watching Sportscenter that night and having the anchors break in with the news. It was a tragic accident that reverberated around MLB.

There are a couple of very good stories up today about the tragedy, and what has happened to the families in the aftermath -- one at the USA Today website, and one at MLB.com.

Check one or both of them out, particularly if you aren't old enough to remember when this happened.
