Baltimore Sports Super Fan Mo Gaba Dies From Cancer at the Age of 14

| July 29, 2020 | 0 Comments

Baltimore Orioles and Ravens super fan and Orioles Hall of Famer Mossila “Mo” Gaba died yesterday at the age of 14 after a life-long battle with cancer. Gaba became well known from his calls into The Scott & Jeremy Show on 105.7 The Fan and went on to become a fixture in Baltimore sports. He got to know countless players and staff from the Orioles and Ravens organizations as well as fans, business owners, and media personalities around Baltimore.

Gaba, who is blind, became the first person to read an NFL Draft pick in braille during the 2019 draft when the Ravens selected Ben Powers with 123rd overall pick. Gaba was inducted into the Orioles Hall of Fame yesterday. He hosted his own radio show on The Fan with Jeremy Conn earlier this month.

Gaba lived in Glen Burnie and attended Lindale Middle School, which he graduated from this year.
