Former Astros minor-leaguer killed

Sad news out of Mississippi: 1993 25th Round draft pick, RHP Mike Walter was shot and killed while serving a search warrant in Mississippi, where he was a police officer, leaving behind a wife and 11-year old daughter.

Walter was 14-23 in seven seasons with the Astros' organization from 1993-1999, and spent parts three seasons in Double-A Jackson from 1997-1999. He had a career 4.17 ERA/1.49 WHIP.
