Well the day started off with nasty weather but everyone including Mother Nature pulled it together for an out of this park Opening Day for the Cardinals!! All the Cardinals fans came to show their support in their red and white gear at the Cardinals rally in the Ballpark Village Parking Lot.
St. Louis fans celebrated the 2014 National League Central Division Champions, honored the team’s Hall of Famers, and commemorated the great tradition of Opening Day. Fans were lining up at the KMOX tent to register to win an autographed baseball by Jason Hayward. Fredbird, Louie, and Rampage joined the St. Louis Cardinals fans to get the crowd pumped up for the first home game for the Cardinals! All the kids were excited to see the mascots and wanted numerous pictures with them.
Todd Thomas became parched on stage with Team Fredbird so he asked the crowd for a beverage. A woman graciously gave him her Bud Light beer and he invited her and her friend up on stage with them. He was touched by her generosity that he gave them two tickets to the Cardinals Opening Day game since they didn’t have tickets. The woman were ecstatic and continued to enjoy the rest of the rally until the game.
Opening Day will always be an undeclared holiday in the home and heart of St. Louis. All fans will continue to show their support and love for their St. Louis Cardinals during the rest of the baseball season. KMOX can’t wait to see everyone at all of our events for the St. Louis Cardinals!! LET’S GO CARDINALS!!!!!
