Mike Napoli Obituary, Death – It is with a heavy heart that we share the news that our good friend and the amazing owner of the bar where we watch our games, Mike Napoli, died away today.
We were all able to develop a strong friendship with Mike because of his consistent courtesy and ability to make us feel at ease at his pub. The 31st of October 1981 found Mike Napoli being born in the city of Hollywood, Florida.
Even at an early age, it was clear that he had a deep love for baseball, and his extraordinary talent shined through in each and every game he participated in. His athletic prowess at Charles Flanagan High School, where he was a standout student and earned him notoriety from college scouts all around the country, led to his recruitment at a number of prestigious universities. Napoli made the decision to enroll in Broward Community College after graduating from high school, and it was not until the 17th round of the 2000 Major League Baseball Draft that he was selected by the Anaheim Angels.
Little did anybody know at the time that this was the beginning of an extraordinary career that would see him become one of the most formidable power hitters of his generation. Little did anyone know that this was the beginning of an illustrious career. On May 4, 2006, Mike Napoli was called up by the Los Angeles Angels to make his debut in the Major League.

These clubs include the Texas Rangers, the Boston Red Sox, and the Cleveland Indians. It didn’t take long for people to recognize him for the amazing power he displayed at the plate, the remarkable defensive talents he possessed, and his charming presence in the locker room.

During that season, he was instrumental in helping the Rangers go all the way to the World Series, demonstrating his talent for coming up with clutch hits and delivering an outstanding performance in high-pressure situations.
Not only did he inspire his colleagues with his leadership and enthusiasm for the sport, but he also inspired fans all around the world.We are keeping his loved ones and friends in our thoughts and prayers. RIP Mike
