According to the Seattle Times' Geoff Baker, Seattle Mariners first baseman Mike Carp has designed a t-shirt in honor of the late Mariners outfielder Greg Halman, who was stabbed to death in Nov. of 2011. The back of the t-shirt has Halman's name above his number like it would be on a jersey and written on top of the number is a quote from Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson, which says,"A life is not important except in the impact is has on other lives."

According to Baker, Carp wants to have the t-shirt sold in the team shop so the money can be donated to the Halman's family charity, but he has to get permission from the team first.
