Cards Pitcher Killed in Auto Accident

The St. Louis Cardinals announced today that relief pitcher Josh Hancock was killed last night in a traffic accident. The 29-year old pitcher was part of the Cardinals 2006 World Series winning team and was a key part to their bullpen.

In 2002, Cardinals pitcher Darryl Kile died prior to a game against the Cubs in Chicago. Kile suffered from coronary atherosclerosis, a narrowing of the arteries supplying the heart.

Tonight’s game between the Cubs and Cards has been postponed. A make-up date has not been announced. My thoughts and prayers are with Hancock's family and teammates.
