. Jaster played for the St. Louis Cardinals from September 17, 1965 to the end of the 1968 season. He would be part of the 1967 World Series winning team, but was remembered for giving up a grand slam to Jim Northrup (Detroit Tigers) in Game 6 of the 1968 World Series (won by the Tigers). Jaster would later play for the Montreal Expos and the Atlanta Braves, and would retire from MLB in 1972. (Submitted on July 23, 2020, by Jason Voigt of Glen Carbon, Illinois.)
