RIP Josh Hancock

Former Thunder pitcher Josh Hancock, now with the St. Louis Cardinals and one of three Thunder alums on their World Series championship team last year, was killed in a car accident in the wee hours of this morning. According to the Associated Press, he was alone in his 2007 Ford Explorer when his car struck the rear of a tow truck that was in the left lane assisting another vehicle.

Hancock pitched for the Thunder during the 2001 and 2002 seasons, going a combined 11-10 with a 3.63 ERA in 215 1/3 innings. He made his major league debut with the Red Sox at the end of the 2002 season and was traded that winter to the Phillies for Jeremy Giambi.
