Mikie Mahtook is a professional baseball player and LSU World Series Champion who chooses to use his platform to make a difference. When Mikie was only four years old, his father Michael Mahtook suddenly died due to cardiomyopathy, a heart disease.
He’d been a college football player. He played at LSU. He was in shape. He was actually playing tennis with a bunch of doctors. And he dropped on the court and instantly died. It was one of those things where he showed no symptoms. Nobody knew he had it. He played sports his whole life. It's kind of one of those freak things that happen, and nobody should ever have to go through.Mikie
