Taylor Negron, actor who played PR guy in Angels in the Outfield, dead at 57

Taylor Negron passed away on Jan. 10, 2015 after a long battle with cancer. Negron -- a writer, performer, comedian and actor -- is perhaps best known for his roles in "The Last Boy Scout" with Bruce Willis, "Young Doctors in Love" and a brief appearance in the 1999 adaptation of "Stuart Little."

Baseball fans, however, will always hold a soft spot in their heart for Negron, who played a hapless, slapstick napkin personified in the 1994 film "Angels in the Outfield" starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Negron's David Montagne is a media consultant for the then-California Angels and is tasked with babysitting JGL and his bff as they help manager George Knox lead the team on an improbable run for the AL pennant.

Rest in peace, Nacho Butt. Even though we can't see you, we know you're always watching.
