Dominican League Players React With Shock, Tribute To Oscar Taveras

Here is video of the moments after players from Dominican League teams Tigres del Licey and Águilas Cibaeñas learned of the death tonight of Cardinals prospect Oscar Taveras. It's heartbreaking.


Taveras had been scheduled to play in this winter's league for Águilas, and team members put Taveras's jersey, bat, and batting helmet up in the dugout. Tonight's game was held up by a rain delay; it was during the delay that news of the accident made its way to the teams, and that video is what is being shown in the above clip from tonight's broadcast on Televisión Dominicana.
