    St. Louis police have determined that 29-year-old relief pitcher John Hancock, who died last week in a fatal car crash, was drunk, talking on his cell phone and not wearing his seatbelt at the time he crashed his car into a tow truck. They also found an eighth of weed and a pipe in the glove box. They have determined that the car was driving 68 mph in a 55 zone.

    Firstly, I'm not here to judge. Everybody makes mistakes. My question is what kind of tribute does a professional athlete like this, who tragically lost their life doing a tragically foolish thing, deserve from the club and from the fans?

    Regardless of the context surrounding his untimely death, the oranization should do something to mark his passing. Personally, I think a moment of silence at their next home game and wearing his number/initials on the sleeves of their jerseys for the rest of the year is appropriate.

    Maybe use his ashes as part of the lime. If anyone had been killed besides him, I would suggest using his ashes ato fill a pot hole in the parking lot of Busch Stadium.
