Day 5 started in Louisville, Kentucky. We stayed overnight there after the Cincinnati game. We went to the Louisville Slugger Bat Factory and took a tour. They make 1.8 million bats a year! We watched how they make them and learned about all the players they make them for.
We drove to St. Louis and got a hotel right by the Arch. We are just two blocks from Busch Stadium. It was super hot…..98 degrees! There was a lot of people in line to get in because it was Bruce Sutter Bobblehead day. We got 4 of them.
Graham: I got a ball from the Brewers pitching coach and an autograph on my ticket from John Shelby, a coach for the Brewers. The kid next to me got Ryan Braun to sign but it was the only one he signed. I have been to Busch Stadium before and it’s a nice stadium. The best thing I had to eat was the pizza. My dad had a Bratzel, a brat wrapped in a baked pretzel.
Matt: Busch Stadium is my favorite park. We had awesome seats that my buddy The Big E got us! Thanks Jon! The view of the city skyline and the Arch is cool. I got autograph on a ball from Livan Hernandaz. I had a Jumbo Dog and my dad had a St.Louis Dog wrapped in bacon and it had baked beans and onions and pickles on it. The game was good and the Cards won 9-3. Yadi Molina was the player of the game. The Cardinal fans are crazy. They did the Wave 4 times.
We have one more game on our tour and will leave for Kansas City this morning.
