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. 2006 World Series Champion Aaron Miles will join the illustrious roster which includes headliner David Eckstein, Vince Coleman, Mark Mulder, Scott Spiezio, Kyle McClellan, Josh Kinney, and Donovan Osborne. These players will be joined by local media personalities on August 11 to compete in a seven inning, celebrity softball-style event.
Miles was originally drafted by the Houston Astros in the 19th round of the 1995 amateur draft. He played in the Astros minor league system through 2000, making it as high as Class-A+ with the Kissimmee Cobras in 2000, where he hit .292 in 75 games. He was a member of the Midwest League All-Star team in 1999. He was promoted to Triple-A with the Charlotte Knights in 2003 and was the International League Rookie of the Year. He made his Major League debut on September 11, 2003 against the Minnesota Twins as a pinch hitter and recorded his first hit on September 18, also against Minnesota. Miles was traded by the Rockies to the St. Louis Cardinals on December 7, 2005 for Ray King. He won a World Series with the Cardinals in 2006.
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.
