NASHUA, N.H. (AP) _ Former major league baseball player Andujar Cedeno, a member of the Atlantic League champion Nashua Pride, has been killed in a car crash in the Dominican Republic.

Cedeno, 31, was killed last weekend, team spokesman Ken Cail said.

The infielder joined the team late in the season and did not play in the Atlantic League championship series because of an injury.

Cedeno played parts of seven seasons in the majors with Houston, San Diego and Detroit. He had a .236 career average with 47 homers and 223 RBIs.

His best season was with the Astros in 1993, when he hit .286 with 11 homers and 56 RBIs.
