Brewers at Miller Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on September 2, 2003.
Stenson, 25, who was in the Phoenix area playing in the Arizona Fall
League, was shot, dragged several blocks and run over by a vehicle
early on Wednesday, said Det. Emma Bribiescas, a Chandler police
spokeswoman. His body was found lying in the roadway at 1:45 a.m. by
police responding to calls of shots being fired in the area. "I am
terribly saddened by the sudden and tragic death of Dernell Stenson
yesterday morning," Baseball commissioner Bud said in a prepared
statement released Thursday. "My deepest sympathies go out to his
family, his friends and his teammates." REUTERS/Allen Fredrickson/FILE
