|Ken Robinson Dies
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Ken Robinson, a baseball player who was trying to make it back to the big leagues with the Arizona Diamondbacks, was killed early Sunday in a car accident. He was 29.
He suffered severe head injuries when a car driven by a fellow minor leaguer careened off a road and overturned.
The driver, pitcher John Rosengren, was charged with second-degree murder in what police say was an alcohol-related crash. Rosengren was not seriously injured.
Robinson had been a part of the Diamondbacks' 40-man roster in spring training a year ago, but missed the season because of shoulder surgery. He and Rosengren were awaiting the opening of the Diamondbacks' minor league training camp.
Robinson had brief big league stints as a relief pitcher with Toronto in 1995 and 1997, and with Kansas City in 1996.
