The River City Rascals are excited to announce another former Cardinal to the 2018 STL Legends Game line-up, presented by Pella Windows and Doors. Donovan Osborne will join the illustrious roster which includes headliner David Eckstein, Vince Coleman, Mark Mulder, Scott Spiezio, Kyle McClellan, Josh Kinney as well as several local celebrities and more legends to come.
Osborne attended Carson High School in Carson City, Nevada before he was drafted by the Montreal Expos in the 1987 Major League Baseball Draft. After declining to sign with the Expos, Osborne attended the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), where he played for the UNLV Rebels baseball team. Out of UNLV, Osborne was chosen by the St. Louis Cardinals in the first round (13th overall) of the 1990 amateur draft. In the 1992 season, his Major League debut season, Osborne finished fifth in MLB Rookie of the Year Award voting. Osborne was the Cardinals' Opening Day starter in 1999, and he consistently produced season ERAs below four despite recurring battles with injury. In 1996, Osborne won 13 games for the Cardinals, made 30 starts for the only time in his career, pitched 198 2⁄3 innings, and posted a 3.53 earned run average. He ranked among the National League top-10 in walks per nine innings, shutouts, ERA+, and strike-to-walk ratio.
The STL Legends game is taking place on Saturday, August 11th at CarShield Field. Gates will open to the general public at 6 PM, but pre-game autograph pass holders will be able to enter the stadium at 3:45 PM. The game will begin at 7 PM and last seven innings.
