Mariners outfielder Greg Halman killed – a brief tribute

Shocking news out of the Netherlands today, where Seattle Mariners prospect Greg Halman was found stabbed to death in his home. Halman’s brother has been arrested and is a suspect in the case.

Greg Halman made his major league debut a few months ago in the Seattle outfield. I saw him play as a member of the AA West Tennessee Diamond Jaxx in 2009 – a year in which he crushed 25 home runs. I gave the call on one of them:

Greg Halman home run v. Mississippi, Aug. 28, 2009 

Halman never hit for a high average, but he could send the ball flying like few in the minor leagues. He showed promise to do the same even at spacious Safeco Field.

Even seeing a guy play from the window of a press box, it changes how the news hits you. Makes it real. And tragic. My thoughts and prayers are with Halman’s family.

  1. När det gäller fÃltiamlsngssror¶eken tror jag sammanslagningarna till namnet har nÃ¥tt vägs ände, eftersom det nya blir jättepastorat – som i praktiken kommer motsvara dagens församlingar, när det gäller krav pÃ¥ gudstjänstfirande, kyrkoherde och kyrkorÃ¥d. Du har säkert rätt i din dystopi när det gäller gudstjänstfirandet men kanppast när det gäller storleken pÃ¥ en sk församling.
