The world of baseball, especially the St. Louis Cardinals, were dealt a heavy blow as we learned of the death of rising start Oscar Taveras. On October 26, Taveras and his girlfriend were killed in a car accident in the Dominican Republic.

Taveras was not only one of the top prospects within the Cardinals organization, he was one of the top young players in all of baseball. His unique skill at the plate as well as in the field had many looking at him as the main cornerstone of the future in St. Louis.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Taveras’s family as well as the family of his girlfriend during this incredibly difficult time.
