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."

Fellow comedians Bob Saget and Patton Oswalt, as well as former D-backs pitcher Dan Haren and current Phillies pitcher Jake Arrieta, took time to remember Stevens via social media.
