RIP: Josh Hancock
Last season, when the St. Louis Cardinals were in Cincinnati to play the Cincinnati Reds, I decided to head over to the game since it was finals week and I didn't have a final that Tuesday. I was lucky enough to get Josh Hancock's autograph. I heard the news, oh, two hours ago or so, and I am in a state of shock and disbelief following the tragic death of St. Louis Cardinals relief pitcher Josh Hancock.
Tonight's game has been postponed as a result of today's tragedy to the St. Louis family. May Josh Hancock rest in peace.
Deadspin has a must-read tribute.
