Stanley Timothy Crews (April 3,1961 –March 23,1993) was an American Major League Baseball pitcher who played six seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers from 1987 to 1992. Crews was part of the Dodgers team that won the 1988 World Series. At the end of the 1992 season,he became a free agent and signed with the Cleveland Indians on January 22,1993.
On March 23,1993,during spring training,Crews and his Indians teammate Steve Olin were killed in a boating accident on Crews' property on Little Lake Nellie in Clermont,Florida. Another teammate,Bob Ojeda,suffered serious head injuries and spent most of the season recovering. An investigation later found that Crews had driven the boat too fast into an unlighted dock and was impaired by a blood alcohol level of 0.14.
The deaths of Crews and Olin were the first deaths of active MLB players since Thurman Munson in 1979. In their memory,the Cleveland Indians wore a patch on their jerseys bearing both players' uniform numbers during the 1993 season. The Dodgers,Crews' former team,also wore a patch bearing his uniform number during the 1993 season.
In 281 major league appearances,almost all in relief,Crews compiled a record of 11–13 with a 3.44 earned run average in 423.2 innings. He recorded 15 saves.

In baseball,the uniform number is a number worn on the uniform of each player and coach. Numbers are used for the purpose of easily identifying each person on the field as no two people from the same team can wear the same number. Although designed for identification purposes only,numbers have become the source of superstition,emotional attachment,and honor. In Major League Baseball,player and manager numbers are always located on the back of the jersey. A smaller number is often found on the front of the jersey,while umpires wear their numbers on the uniform shirt sleeve.
