Retired Pitcher Jose Lima Last Photographed at 'The Empire Strikes Back' Day at Dodger Stadium, Two Days Before His Death

As previously reported, retired pitcher for the L.A. Dodgers Jose Lima was found dead Sunday, May 23 after suffering a heart attack. On Friday, however, the famed baseball player was front and center at Dodger Stadium to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Sci-Fi classic The Empire Strikes Back alongside other fans of the team and of the film franchise. We snapped this photo of Lima at what turned out to be his last public appearance before his death two days later.
