Cubs-Cards game postponed

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.

    As a cardinal fan,it really means alot to have,of all people,cubs fans reaching out to us and our team. you know,talk giants-dodgers or yankees-red sox all you want,the cubs-cardinals rivalry is the best in the game,not only because of the intensity,loyalty,and knowledge of our fans,but,the fact they are all class acts.over the past few years we cardinal fans have lost a rotation ace(kile),one of the greatest announcers in the history of the game(buck),and a talented,often underappreciated reliever(hancock) and,everytime,our rivals,our sworn enemies,the cubs nation,has gone out of its way to console and encourage us. i still will root against you everytime it could adversely affect us,but,thank you so much and,unless theyre playing the cardinals,go cubs! once again your class has shown through.
