The game between the Chicago Cubs and the St. Louis Cardinals has been postponed after the death of St. Louis pitcher, Josh Hancock.
Hancock, 29, was killed in an auto accident on Interstate 64. Cardinals manager, Tony LaRussa broke the news to Hancock’s father.
On June 22, 2002, Cardinals pictcher Daryl Kile was found dead in his hotel room causing that game to be postponed. That was on the road against the Chicago Cubs.
There is a press conference scheduled for 3PM EST Sunday.
Hancock joined the Cardinals in February 2006 as a free agent.
Let’s Go Cubs extends its deepest symapthy to Hancock’s family and friends and to the Cardinals organization.
