The Arizona State Sun Devils baseball team paid respect to actor, comedian and former Sun Devil pitcher Brody Stevens, who died at age 48, before Saturday's game.
Stevens -- real name Steven Brody -- died in Los Angeles on Friday. Multiple reports said Stevens' death was the result of an apparent suicide.
An avid baseball fan, Stevens received a scholarship to play baseball at ASU and pitched in four games before moving on to focus on his comedy career. He appeared in a number of TV shows and films, including "The Hangover" and "The Hangover Part II."

I will never forget the time spent with Brody Stevens during my time in Chicago thx to Mike Borzello. Every conversation was memorable, he loved baseball, and watching him throw a bullpen during an early spring morning will always be a highlight for me..— Jake Arrieta (@JArrieta34) February 23, 2019
