According to Greg Johns of MLB.com, the funeral service for Greg Halman will be held Tuesday in the Netherlands. The family is also having a public viewing Sunday in the Kinheim gym in Haarlem, where Halman played baseball growing up.
The Mariners plan to send vice president of international operations Bob Engle, coordinator of European scouting Wayne Norton and and Peter Van Dalen, an associate scout in the Netherlands.
Halman, who played in 44 games with the Mariners over the past two seasons, died Monday morning when he was stabbed at an apartment in the Dutch port city of Rotterdam. According to the Associated Press, a judge has ordered Greg’s 22-year-old brother Jason to be detained for two more weeks on suspicion of murder or manslaughter. Police believe the incident may have followed an argument over loud music. Just tragic.
