Chris Duncan, a Canyon del Oro High School baseball star who won a World Series with the St. Louis Cardinals before becoming a beloved radio host in the midwest, has died. He was 38.

The Cardinals' television broadcast announced Duncan's death during Friday night's game. He was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2012.

Duncan is the younger brother of Shelley Duncan, the Arizona Wildcats' all-time home runs leader who played in the big leagues and is now a member of the Toronto Blue Jays' coaching staff. Their father, Dave, was a longtime pitching coach in the majors.

Duncan played both football and baseball at CDO, hitting 19 home runs as the Dorados won the 1997 state championship. He went 4 for 4 in the title game. Duncan verbally committed to play for coach Jerry Stitt at the UA, but opted instead to sign with the Cardinals, who selected him in the first round (46th overall) of the 1999 draft. The Cardinals' drafted him on the recommendation of scout Clark Crist, a former UA standout and longtime Tucsonan.
