Such a shame. Brain cancer is a terrible terrible thing I don't wish upon the worst people in the world.

Heart's out to Dave. Glad the family got to celebrate the height of baseball glory together.

Heartbreaking. That family has had a rough go of it. I hope Dave and Shelly have a good support system around them. I can't imagine what this is like for either of them.

Quote:
A left fielder and first baseman, Duncan was selected with the 46th pick in the 1999 Draft and made his debut in September 2005. His first Major League home run, on Oct. 2, 2005, was the last long ball hit in Busch Stadium II. Duncan was a key part of the Cardinals’ championship run in 2006. He batted .293/.363/.589 with 22 homers that season and was named the team's rookie of the year by the St. Louis media and broadcasters.

The native of Tucson, Ariz., spent five seasons with the club, producing an .805 OPS in that span. He also spent time with the Red Sox and Nationals at the Minor League level from 2009-10.

After ending his playing career, Duncan flourished in his next journey. He joined WXOS, an ESPN radio affiliate, as a broadcaster in 2011, covering St. Louis sports. On the air, Duncan drew a large following by mixing his larger-than-life personality with his unfiltered honesty about the state of affairs. He also brought a fun family aspect to the radio waves, hosting a weekly hit with his dad, Dave, dubbed "Papa Dunc."
