Frank Wills was a multisport athlete at De La Salle, where he played football, basketball and baseball. He helped guide the Cavaliers to the state baseball championship in 1977 and was selected the championship game's MVP.

At Tulane, Wills was a punter for the football team and an ace pitcher for the baseball team. He was selected first-team Sporting News Collegiate All-American in 1980 and subsequently picked 16th overall by the Kansas City Royals in the first round of the 1980 Major League draft.

Wills made his Major League debut for the Royals in 1983 and also played for the Seattle Mariners, Cleveland Indians and Toronto Blue Jays before retiring in 1991.

heart attack or stroke?

First thought I had.

2nd thought was overmedicating or having a reaction to some medication (but as I don't know much about him - it wouldn't be good to presume. Actually not happy with myself for even thinking it).

He seems like a person who was well-liked and lived a full life.

Prayers for him and his his loved ones.
