Former MLB outfielder Danny Clyburn shot, killed in Lancaster

RIP, Danny Clyburn...

Danny Clyburn Jr., a former baseball player for the Baltimore Orioles and Tampa Bay Devil Rays, died in a Lancaster shooting early Tuesday morning, police say.

Clyburn, 37, was shot at about 2 a.m. at a home at 618 N. Market Street, Lancaster police said.

An autopsy is scheduled for later today. Lancaster County’s Chief Deputy Coroner Karla Knight Deese would not say where Clyburn was shot or how many times he was hit.

Witnesses told police that a man was arguing with Clyburn just moments before he was shot.

Derrick Lamont Mcilwain, 36, of Lancaster, has been arrested and charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime. Mcilwain turned himself in to authorities early Tuesday, police said, and he is in the detention center awaiting a bond hearing.

...After being drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1992, Clyburn played outfielder in the Major League for three seasons - two with Baltimore (1997-98) and one with Tampa Bay (1999) - according to Baseball-Reference.com. Playing in 41 games, he hit four home runs with a batting average of .211.

Sad.

According to SI, the shooting took place on Clyburn's front lawn.

Just to be clear, this is Lancaster, SC - not the PA or CA one.

When he played for the Rochester Red Wings, my best friend and I went to a game where Clyburn hit two home runs, winning everyone in attendance a free pizza. From then on we always referred to him as Pizza Clyburn.

Such a shame.

RIP, Pizza Clyburn.

Re: #4

A similar event happened at a Padres game one time I was in attendance. I will forever refer to Kevin Jarvis as "Free Donuts."
