ESPN – The St. Louis Cardinals announced that the team will wear patches on its jerseys in 2015 to honor Oscar Taveras.
The patches will read “OT” to honor the late outfielder who died this offseason at the age of 22 in a car crash in his native Dominican Republic.
Lost ALOT of respect for the Cardinals after reading about this on twitter. Taveras had a blood alcohol level of .287. That’s fucking higher than what his batting average was. That’s god damn impressive. But the fact that the St. Louis Cardinals, a respected and cherished organization is going to honor this is disgusting. Lets not forget the fact that his girlfriend was in the car with him and died. That makes him a murderer.
Fuck the Cardinals and fuck @TheRedbirdWay
