(KPLR) - St. Louisan Jon Hamm was at Busch Stadium Monday afternoon. The award winning actor grew up in Normandy and still has family in North County.

Hamm was asked about the events taking place in Ferguson.   He says it is a, "Bad situation all around.  There is no positive spin to it.

When all the facts come out hopeful all the light will be shed on all sides of it. Hopefully, justice will be carried out. I know people from Ferguson, my sister lives in Florissant, I'm from Normandy, My little sister is in Overland Hills.  That is my neighborhood.

I know that there are a lot more good people in those neighborhoods then bad people.   It is rough to watch.  St. Louis has had a rough couple of decades now.  It would be nice to turn it around.  The people in St. Louis, in my experience, are great people.  So, if anyone can do it you can.  I hope everyone can pull this together for the sake of the community.  That is all you got at the end of the day."
