McGregor parlayed in lifelong love of sports into a short stint in the NFL before embarking a career in the baseball business. Police were called about 9 a.m. MT and emergency workers arrived on the scene and were unable to revive him.

“There are no signs of foul play. … Based on the initial investigation [police and fire officials] did not see anything suspicious,” Detective Rick Wall said. “There is nothing suspicious. At this point it would look like it was some sort of a natural cause or something along those lines.”

“This is an enormous and tragic loss for CSU and all of Colorado,” university president Tony Frank said. “Keli was a true champion in life and on the field, who exemplified what we’d want for all our graduates — an honorable and successful business leader, dedicated family man and loyal alumnus.”
