Thousands gathered in the neighborhood of Sosua, Dominican Republic, to celebrate the life and mourn the loss of Oscar Taveras on Tuesday. Here in St. Louis, folks continued to stop by Busch Stadium. Several placed items at a growing memorial at the foot of the Stan Musial statue.

Here are some images from both scenes:
