Ivan Calderon 

Rest in peace, Ivan. Puerto Rican cops say he was shot execution style. Calderon started out with the Mariners, but I'll always remember one brilliant moment he had with the White Sox. Playing left field in Old Comiskey Park, Calderon climbed onto the padding that went halfway up the outfield wall, held on to the fence with his throwing hand, reached up with his glove, and took a home run away. That catch is one of the most creative thieveries I've ever seen, right up there with Buhner going over the fence at Fenway and that Japanese guy standing on top of the wall to take one away.

Ivan Calderon was only 41 years old when he was killed.
