Pic of the Day: Oct. 26, 2014 (Special Obituary Edition)

20110907 - DSC09398b - QC 15 - Taveras

That’s 22 year-old St. Louis Cardinals rookie Oscar Taveras, three years ago when he was with the Quad Cities River Bandits (batting in the playoffs at Clinton against the Lumberkings on Sept. 7, 2011; the Bandits won the MWL Championship that year.)

Reports indicate that he was killed today in a car wreck in the Dominican Republic.

This one was from July 14 of that year – in Davenport against the Dayton Dragons.  He’s about to make contact with the ball; I checked my records, and I’m pretty sure he connected with it for a hit.
