If former Cardinal pitcher Jason Christiansen wants to honor Darryl Kile, he’ll have to find some other way to do it. Major League Baseball has told the Giant’s pitcher that he will not be allowed to sit in the dugout during the World Series if he continues to wear a cap with the initials “D.K.” on it because it violates uniform rules. Christiansen was Kile’s teammate in St. Louis in 2000 and 2001. He’ll still have the “D.K.” cap in the dugout, but won’t wear it. Christiansen, who’s on the disabled list, isn’t on the active roster but has been allowed to join the team on the bench. Major League Baseball decided not to press the matter with the Cardinals, but under the new labor agreement, such displays will not be allowed for any team. The Hall of Fame has decided to put Darryl Kile on its 2003 ballot. He’s only the third deceased player to have the customary 5-year waiting period waived. , Thurman Munson and Roberto Clemente were the others. Kile was 133-119 in his career.
