Auckland Tuatara pitcher Josh Collmenter joins the Radio Sport Breakfast team to talk about the tragic death of teammate Ryan Costello.

23-year-old Costello was found dead in his Massey University room on Monday morning, with the club indicating he died of natural causes.

Costello had been in New Zealand for just one week ahead of the start of the Australian Baseball League season.

Collmenter says the team are doing as well as can be expected.

"The first 24 hours everybody was still just in shock and disbelief over what happened, you're never prepared for anything like that."

He says everyone within the club wants to do the best by Costello, by playing their season opener against the Perth Heat tomorrow night.
