One Year Ago

Josh Hancock, April 11, 1978 - April 29, 2007

Here's the original thread on VEB from when the news came out -- hard to read through for me -- considering all that has happened since that day one year ago, it definitly seems like a lot more time than 366 days have past. In fact, his passing is even now, just twelve short months removed, often overlooked in the drama that the 2007 club endured.

Although a lot of the original rumors about what had happened that night (unfortunately) were true, this still marks the passing of a young man who was a beloved son, brother, friend, teammate, and World Series Champion.

I still almost morbidly think of Josh every day as I'm driving home from work, passing by the Anheuser Busch sign on Highway 40 by Grand, and remember the night that one man made the fatal mistake of not calling a cab.

Rip, Josh. You're missed.
