R.I.P. Josh Hancock

May 1, 2007


It was a sad story over the weekend, hearing about Josh Hancock’s fatal accident in St. Louis. Hancock was one of those guys that make a Major League team function. He wasn’t a superstar, but rather a guy who ate up innings out of the bullpen. Tony La Russa even said that the Cards wouldn’t have won the World Series without him. That’s quite high praise for any athlete.

The strangest thing was that Hancock was in a similar accident just three days before his death. It’s a horrific story and Hancock will surely be missed around the league.
