That Time of Year Again and a Sneak Peek
Time to dig out the red shirts and root for the home team! I have said it before and many others have said it before me, "This is a baseball town!" Regular TV programming will be pre-empted all day to cover opening day activities. Not a moment will be missed.
It is always exciting when the Clydesdales come onto the field. The crowd loves it. It wouldn't be opening day without it.
On a sad note, this will be the first year in more than many can remember without "Stan the Man." Stan passed away this year, on my birthday actually. He was a much beloved figure here in St. Louis.
In his honor the giveaway at this year's home opener is a harmonica. Stan was known for playing his harmonica wherever he went. He was also known as a man of great faith and integrity. In a day when children need heroes, he is one for the ages.
Let's play ball!
And a sneak peek.
Just a tiny peek at the coming home gown. A shadow work fleur de lis. More to come.
