June 22, 2002- A saddened Joe Girardi, the Chicago Cubs’ player rep, informs the Wrigley Field crowd of the postponement of the scheduled game between St. Louis and the Cubs due to the death of Darryl Kile, who is found dead in his Chicago hotel room as the result of coronary disease. The 33 year-old Cardinal right-hander is the first active major league player to pass away during the regular season since the death Yankee captain Thurman Munson in 1979 who died while practicing landing his plane at the Akron-Canton Airport.
