Cardinals Outfielder Dies at the Age of 22

St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Oscar Taveras passed away on Sunday in a car accident in the Dominican Republic.

Taveras was just 22 years old. He appeared in 80 games during the regular season and was part of the Cardinals’ roster that advanced to the National League Championship Series.

Taveras’ pinch-hit home run in the seventh inning of Game 2 helped lift St. Louis to its only victory of the NLCS against the eventual NL pennant-winning San Francisco Giants.

Before arriving at the MLB level and belting a home run in his second at-bat, Taveras posted a .318 batting average for the Triple-A Memphis Redbirds this year. That provides an indication as to how much talent Taveras possessed, as he was just coming into his own for the Cardinals before his untimely passing.
