Former Mustang Baseball Standout Danny Gans Dies at 52

Former Cal Poly baseball player Danny Gans, named "Las Vegas Entertainer of the Year" for 11 consecutive years, died early May 1, according to United Press International. Gans was 52. The cause of death was not immediately known, although the Las Vegas Review Journal reported Gans had apparently died in his sleep.

He is survived by his wife, Julie, and three children. Gans billed himself as a "musical impressionist" who delighted audiences with his takes on legendary Strip entertainers.

He was the top attraction at the Mirage for more than a dozen years until February when he moved to Encore, the new Wynn hotel-casino that opened late last year.

  1. the loss of Danny Gans is sad; i would have thought that, besides his physically healthy habits, his sense of humor would have helped him live an especially long life
