CHICAGO (Ticker) -- After lengthy discussions with members of the
St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs regarding the tragic death
of Cardinals pitcher Darryl Kile, commissioner Bud Selig
determined it appropriate for the clubs to play on Sunday night.
Saturday afternoon's game was postponed after Kile was found
dead in his Chicago hotel room. He was 33.
The cause of death is not known, although Cardinals manager Tony
La Russa and general manager Walt Jocketty said Kile may have
died in his sleep at the Westin Hotel.
An autopsy will be performed Sunday. Kile's father died at the
age of 44 due to a heart attack, according to mlb.com, baseball's
