Major League Baseball's offseason has taken a tragic turn with word that a young player has been murdered.
FOX News Radio's Chris Hoenig has the details:
Seattle Mariners' left fielder Greg Halman, found stabbed to death in his native Holland Monday morning. The 24-year-old was considered an up-and-comer, impressing with both his bat and his glove.
(Play-by-play) "Little looper...coming in, left fielder Halman. He's there! Yes, sir. Big play, Greg Halman!"
That play coming against the Phillies last June on FOX Sports.
Rotterdam police arrested Halman's 22-year-old brother in connection with the murder. Halman joined Seattle at just 16, the club calling him "a tremendous teammate." MLB Commissioner Bud Selig also releasing a statement, saying that the death is painful for all those throughout the game.
