Baseball Is Here!
What a thrill it was to see the St. Louis Cardinals take the field this weekend at AutoZone Park. Albert Pujols and the gang were visitors to the Memphis Redbirds for a two-game series that took place on Friday and Saturday. The following photos are from Saturday, which turned out to be a perfect day for baseball.
Reigning National League MVP Albert Pujols had a killer day on Friday, going 3-for-5 and netting six RBI. He also hit a home run in Friday’s game and belted one over the Bluff in left field during batting practice on Saturday.
Managers Tony La Russa and Chris Maloney talk before the game. Maloney had the honor of taking the last at-bat on Saturday, producing a ground out off of Jason Motte.
Friday and Saturday proved to be an exciting day for baseball fans in the greater Memphis area and a nice taste of what’s to come. For exhibition recap stories with quotes from Tony La Russa click the links below:
