Funeral set for Gabrielle Schoeneweis

Funeral services for Gabrielle Schoeneweis, the wife of D-backs pitcher Scott Schoeneweis, will be held Monday at 10:30 a.m. MST at Messenger Pinnacle Peak Mortuary in Scottsdale, Ariz.

According to Maricopa County Sherrif’s office, Gabrielle Schoeneweis was found dead on the floor of the couple’s master bedroom last Wednesday. Lindsey Smith, spokesperson for the Sheriff’s office said that there were no signs of foul play and while they are not ruling anything out, they are not treating it as a homicide at this point. More will be known once the medical examiner determines the cause of death.

“We’re respecting his privacy,” D-backs manager A.J. Hinch said. “I haven’t heard from him, nor do I expect to, until we get back home. Obviously our thoughts and prayers are still with him.”

The D-backs would like to go en masse to the funeral, but will be unable to because their game with the Padres that day starts at 12:40 p.m.

“We’ll have some representation there,” Hinch said. “We wish we could all be there for him. If it had been a night game obviously we would have chartered a bus to go out and be with him.”


Why can’t there be a delay of the Home game so that Steve’s fellow team members can attend the service?

Actually, Sharon, it is Scott. I agree with you…I think the game could have been changed to a night contest since it is the start of a series, instead of a finale. Maybe, Scott and his family wanted to keep the service small and private.
