Scott Rolen throws out first pitch for Cardinals before NLDS Game 4

When Scott Rolen got the call up to the bigs he was hailed by Phillies fans as "the next Mike Schmidt." Turns out he'd end up being remembered as a Cardinal.

Rolen hit .286, belted 111 home runs and drove in 453 runs over six seasons in St. Louis. From 2002 to 2006, Rolen played in 32 postseason games from the Cardinals, punctuated by an 8-for-19 showing with five runs-scored in five games of the '06 World Series against the Tigers.

On Tuesday, he looked to help the Cardinals win another crucial postseason game, this time offering emotional support in the form of a cermonial first pitch before Game 4 of the NLDS with the Dodgers.
