and from KSDK in St Louis

St. Louis Cardinals officials have confirmed relief pitcher Josh Hancock was killed in a traffic accident at 12:35am this morning. Hancock was driving his black Ford Explorer westbound on Highway 40 when his vehicle struck the back of a tow truck that was stopped in the westbound to assist a motorist. Hancock was killed in the accident. No other injuries were reported.

Merged two threads.

I flipped on the Phils game and thought I saw Josh Hancock 1976-2007 on the big screen. Very sad. RIP.

article from friday

Reliever Josh Hancock, after pitching three innings on Tuesday, probably wasn't going to appear in Thursday's game, but he almost didn't make it, anyway.

Hancock admitted he had overslept on his new comfortable bed, and thinking the game was starting later than it was (12:10 p.m.), didn't get up until the "20th call" he received from anxious teammates.

With righthander Darryl Kile dying before a game in Chicago five years ago, the Cardinals don't take it lightly when a player doesn't show up at the park on time.

Reliever Jason Isringhausen, the only pitcher still on the club who played with Kile here, said, "(Hancock's) phone always shuts off. Everybody was trying to reach him. That's why it's so different here because of what happened with Darryl. So everybody worries. That's got more to do with it than oversleeping.

"We were all a little nervous. We don't care if you're late. That happens. We want to know that you're OK."

Manager Tony La Russa said only, "It's not worth discussing. It's personal and not baseball-related."

But Hancock said he expected to be fined.

I wonder if he was wearing a seatbelt. I wish they would release information like that.

How many numbers did Hancock wear with the Cardinals? There were at least 3 different ones in the piece on Baseball Tonight.
