Cardinals to honor late Taveras with uniform patches
ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Cardinals will wear uniform patches this season to honor the late Oscar Taveras.
The rookie outfielder died last October in a car accident in his native Dominican Republic.
Cardinals uniforms will feature patches with Taveras' initials and his No. 18. Team chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. said the club also is renovating a field in Taveras' hometown of Sosua.
