Sorry to hear. All cancers are serious, but not all are equal. Glioblastoma is one of the worst and it sounds like Duncan endured it way better than most. No doubt he’s a tough man who I enjoyed watching play. May he RIP.
Tough break for Chris. We do not win in 2006 without his contributions. He was a bit of a Jose Martinez in that he was not good in the outfield, but with Pujols at first we had to play him there and he did what he could. His bat provided thunder though. For awhile there when he and Rick Ankiel were going good, I thought they might be stars for several years. But both faded as pitchers found their weaknesses, and they could not adjust.
Awesome article on Chris and his impact on a high school team. Deep in the article are great lessons for any coach. Relationships, empathy, humility, laughter and kindness…..Knowledge and experience are important but caring and love trump all. https://t.co/3Wichj2AEn
