The baseball team with a heart

Here’s your daily dose of sweetness:

St. Louis is the greatest baseball city in America. Anyone who’s ever watched a game there knows that.

But this SportsCenter mini-documentary reveals another reason: the Cardinals have a heart, which is why they traded a player last year to Oakland. So he could be near his mother for her last few months.

    As a Brewers fan it pains me to say this… but nice job, Cardinals (and A’s). It’s my understanding that Gretchen Piscotty has indeed passed away EDIT: yesterday (original post: within the past week or two), and so condolences to Stephen and the family/families impacted as well. Anyway, thanks for this one, Bob.

      This was discussed in the booth during last nights Twins-Cardinals game.

    It was really dusty in the lunchroom today….

    I should have grabbed more napkins before I started watching.

    Thanks for posting, Bob. So much love in the middle of so much pain.
