Today, on October 26th 2014, Oscar Taveraswas killed in a car accident while driving in the Dominican Republic. At only 22 years old, he was one of the best prospects in the Major Leagues, and had a very bright future ahead of him. His second to last hit was a pinch hit home run to tie the game in the 7th inning of game 2 of the NLCS. I didn't know a whole lot about him, but knew he was a future outfielder for the Cardinals, who hit 30+ home runs a year. His girlfriend was also killed in the car accident. I hope Oscar Taveras and his wife live a happier life, and there family is okay. Rest In Peace Oscar Taveras.
