Cardinals top prospect Oscar Taveras harmlessly flew out to left field in his first major league at-bat this afternoon, but he did this in his second at-bat:
That swing. Just beautiful. Here’s hoping it’s the first of many in the big leagues. The game went into a rain delay right after the home run, which gave the Cardinals a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the fifth inning, so it is an official game and the home run will count no matter what.
