On March 31, 2001, a 22-year-old outfielder named Brian Cole climbed into his 2001 Ford Explorer, a two-door SUV and headed west from Port St. Lucie. His 17-year-old cousin, Ryan Cole, was along for the ride.
Spring training was over and Cole - one of the brightest prospects in the Mets’ farm system - was bound for a Double-A assignment in Binghamton, but not before he returned the Explorer to his parents’ home in Mississippi.
Brian Cole never made it to his hometown of Meridian. In an accident whose cause remains a source of legal debate, Cole rolled the vehicle while traveling westbound on State Highway 8 near the Florida-Georgia border, was thrown from the vehicle and died several hours later in a Florida hospital. His cousin, Ryan, was released from the hospital hours later.
Their belief: Brian Cole should have been a major-league star.
"He probably would have come on the scene right with Jose Reyes in 2003," Duquette told the Daily News.
