2018 Legends Game Roster
Jim Edmonds, a 17-year veteran of Major League Baseball, was a four-time All-Star (1995, 2000, 2003, 2005) and a World Series champion in 2006 with the St. Louis Cardinals. He received the Gold Glove Award eight times (1997, 1998, 2000-2005), a Silver Slugger Award in 2004, and has since been named to the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame.

Ray Lankford spent 14 years in the majors after making his debut with the Cardinals in 1990. In his first full season in 1991, he led the league with 15 triples and became the first Cardinal rookie to ever hit for the cycle. Ray ranks in the all-time top ten in St. Louis' history in multiple categories and is the only Cardinal to have 200 home runs and 200 stolen bases. He holds the record for the most home runs at the old Busch Stadium (123) and finished his career in his home ballpark with a pinch-hit home run in his final Major League at-bat on October 3, 2004.

Fernando Tatis, an 11-year veteran of Major League Baseball, played for five clubs over the course of his career which included three-years with the Cardinals (1998-2000). In 1999, Fernando had the best season of his career with 34 home runs, 107 RBIs, and 21 stolen bases. He made baseball history on April 23, 1999, when he hit two grand slams against the Dodgers in one inning, becoming the only player in Major League history to do so and setting the record for RBIs in an inning. Just over a week ago (January 2018), the Boston Red Sox announced that Tatis will manage one of their two Rookie-level Dominican Summer League affiliates.
