Greg Halman, R.I.P.

By on 11.21.11 | 7:47AM

Seattle Mariners outfielder Greg Halman was stabbed to death in The Netherlands today. Rotterdam police have his younger brother in custody. He was 24.

The Dutch native was signed by the Mariners in 2004 and played parts of 2010 and 2011 with the big league club. Halman also played with The Netherlands national team during the 2009 World Baseball Classic.

Not only has this tragedy curtailed a promising career and a promising life but it may very well destroy his family. How absolutely awful.
