RIP Oscar Taveras: Photos to Remember the Cardinals Star

Oscar Taveras, the 22-year-old Cardinals outfielder who died in a car crash Sunday in the Dominican Republic, was a star-in-the-making with an infectious personality — a player teammates loved to be around, fans loved to watch, and scouts had long since admired.

Taveras made his Major League Debut this past May and made enough of an impact that the Cardinals put him on their postseason roster — a move that paid off when Taveras hit a pinch-hit home run against the Giants in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series.

We we mourn the loss of Taveras, here's a look at his short but impressive career in photos. (Getty Images)
