Default RIP Chris Duncan

2006 World Series champion with the Cardinals dead of brain cancer at 38. He's best known to Sox fans as being plunked in the beanball war that erupted during the 20-6 win over the Redbirds that year.

So sad, my condolences to the Family of Chris and Dave Duncan. I remember when he came up and made an immediate impact in the Cardinals lineup. He was a good looking player with a lot of pop in his bat.

I was also at the Sox-Cardinals game when the Sox hit Duncan with a pitch and the benches emptied, with Cardinals Pitching Coach And Dad Dave leading the charge out on the field. There was a media storm afterwards when a newspaperman misquoted Ozzie on whether he spoke or called the Cardinals Manager Tony LaRussa And Dave Duncan to smooth over the hurt feelings on both sides.

Chris Duncan was a member of their 2006 World Series Championship team, so Iím sure his World Series ring will be a cherished family heirloom. RIP Chris, you were a gamer.
