    According to the Florida Marlins' broadcasters, Scott Schoeneweis' wife was found dead.

    From FOX's Phoenix affiliate ...
    The wife of Arizona Diamondbacks relief pitcher Scott Schoeneweis, Gabrielle Dawn, was found dead Wednesday in their Fountain Hills Home.

    According to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, 39-year-old Gabrielle Dawn Schoeneweis was unresponsive when deputies arrived at 12:11 p.m. Wednesday.

    Her body was found by one of the couple's four children, a 14-year-old girl. She told police she found her mother on the floor of the master bedroom.

    Cause and manner of death are undetermined. Authorities are investigating.

    this is just devastating

    I've known Scott since he was at Lenape HS in New Jersey, and he's just a hall of fame person ... a cancer survivor ... devoted family guy

    just horrible

    may scott and the kids be blessed with the strength to get through this terrible tragedy

    Evidently, she was found by their 14-year-old daughter.

    They have three other kids.

    Awful. Just awful.

    Horrible news.

    On a side note, am I the only one consistently perplexed with how TV handles news like this?

    The ESPN studio person put on her serious face to announce the news, and the music slowed down. Then, like someone gradually turning up a treadmill, her voice got happier, the music got faster and on they went to the on-field highlights.

    Maybe there's no other way to do this, but it just seems awkward.

    They should have thrown the news of her death to a different anchor. Then throw it back to the main studio person to continue with highlights.

    they should also report it and then cut right to commercial, whenever possible... and it seems to me it should always be possible, no? ??? ??? ???

    Not really. That really limits where it can run in a newscast -- like, precisely 10 minutes in, if it runs in my newscast. If it's your top story you can't go to break 2 minutes into your newscast.

    If it runs in the middle of a segment, the trick is to find a story to put next that softens the transition a bit. If you're Sportscenter you do something like Vick getting released from prison as the next story -- not Yankees highlights or NBA playoffs or whatever.

    By the way, the sports news is unbelievably gloomy in Phoenix these days -- Gabrielle Schoeneweis, Wayman Tisdale, Brian Grant, Amy Mickelson, and the Coyotes saga.
