Astros to Remember Kile

The Astros are honoring former Houston pitcher Darryl Kile with a memorial plaque mounted along the left field wall at Minute Maid Park. Kile pitched for the Astros from 1991 to 1997. Kile died Saturday in a hotel room in Chicago, where his St. Louis Cardinals were playing the Cubs. Preliminary autopsy results indicate he suffered a heart attack caused by blocked arteries. He was 33.

The white, circular plaque is three feet in diameter and bears Kile's initials, D.K., which was his nickname among Houston players and fans. It will hang under the 1997 Central Division championship banner, the last season he played for Houston before signing as a free agent with Colorado.
