The San Francisco Giants confirmed on Thursday that Cristin Coleman, who was married to former Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum, has died.
The San Mateo Daily Journal reported that Coleman died on June 27 of cancer. She was an elementary school principal in Burlingame, Calif.
Lincecum, who won three World Series with the Giants, made four straight All-Star Games between 2008 and 2011 and won back-to-back NL Cy Young awards.
Coleman "was beloved by the Giants family and her caring and genuine spirit touched those of us who were fortunate enough to know her during her and Timmy’s years with us," the Giants said in their statement. A spokesperson told the San Francisco Chronicle that "Tim is extremely private and we honor and respect his privacy."
