A Major League Baseball player was reportedly stabbed to death Monday in the Netherlands.
Greg Halman, 24, was found dead just after 5 a.m. Monday in Rotterdam, a police spokeswoman said. Investigators arrested his 22-year-old brother, she said.
Halman played centerfield for the Seattle Mariners.
Betra Dorrestijn, a spokeswoman for the Royal Baseball and Softball Union of the Netherlands, said Halman's family confirmed his death to the federation.
"We are shocked to hear that Gregory Halman has passed away," she said. "It is tragic that he should die at such a young age."
Halman was a federation member when he played baseball as a teenager for an amateur team in his hometown of Haarlem, just outside Amsterdam, before going to the United States to play, Dorrestijn said.FULL STORY
