Dutch baseball player Gregory Halman, 24, was stabbed to death in Rotterdam on Monday morning.

Police have arrested his younger brother Jason as a suspect in the stabbing, which was reportedly prompted by an argument over loud music.

Gregory Halman began his professional career in 2005, playing with the rookie-league Arizona League Mariners. He was called up by the Seattle Mariners in September 2010.

Halman was a member of the Dutch national team when it won the European Championships in 2007 and reached the semi-finals of the World Championships that same year. He did not play for the Dutch national team that won this year’s World Championships in Panama.

In the past few weeks Gregory Halman had been travelling across Europe in connection with the European Big League Tour. He was teaching clinics for young talent along with other Dutch players like Rick van den Hurk.
