Cardinal Crazy

Posted by on August 4, 2012

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.
