Sadly, this is likely the first ‘World Series’ clue for the upcoming 116th World Series in 2020.
He has died on February 16, or 16/2, like 162. *47th day of the year
His full name also sums to 162.
He died 33-weeks after his 57th birthday, and 135-days before his upcoming.
He died 39-days before the start of the MLB season. *New York = 39
He played for the Yankees and Mets in his career.
He died 247-days before the start of the World Series. *Atlanta, Georgia = 247
I will need to comb over MLB team and city Gematria, because there could be other connections I am overlooking. But with regards to Atlanta, if Jimmy Carter bites the dust, remember, he was used in an Atlanta Braves playoff ritual last year that had much to do with “39”. *Cumberland = 39
