MLB Network to air Darryl Kile documentary

MLB Network will be airing a documentary tonight at 9 PM ET, entitled The Life and Death of Darryl Kile, a retrospective of the former Cardinals pitcher's life ten years after he suddenly passed away in his Chicago hotel room.

Narrated by Bob Costas, the documentary will feature interviews with many people throughout baseball that Kile affected, including former teammates Jeff Bagwell, Mike Matheny, Craig Biggio, and Brad Ausmus. Various other people you've heard of will be featured as well including Joe Buck, Tony La Russa, Joe Girardi, and Jim Leyland.

There will also be interviews with various members of the Cardinals staff that were with the team when Kile passed away. MLB.com has a preview clip from the documentary that aired last month on June 22nd, the ten year anniversary of Kile's death. The clip posted is very emotional and moving… and that's just eight minutes of the hour-long piece. The full documentary will likely be extremely well-done, but at the same time, a tear-jerker.
