We went to our last Cardinal game of the season yesterday. It was David Eckstein Bobblehead day. David Eckstein was the 2006 World Series MVP and even though he only played for the Cardinals for three seasons (2005-2007) and he's now retired, St. Louis still loves David Eckstein. My mom wanted to add his bobblehead to her collection so we went to the game.
As I've mentioned in pervious posts, during the games, you can text your name and city to the Cardinals and they post it on the video screen. We're always from somewhere in Hawaii...hee hee hee. This time, Greta joined us...
We all had a great time...LOL. OK, actually we're not really from Hawaii and Greta wasn't really at the game but I'm sure you already knew this. Anyway, The Cardinals beat the Pirates 4 to 3 and now the whole season comes down to today. We're still in the Wildcard race but the Dodgers need to win and the Cardinals need to win in order to tie. Ugh, the pressure.
Little did when know when we bought the tickets that this game would be Matt Holliday's last or second to last game as a Cardinal. It was announced on Thursday that the Cardinals would not be offering him a contract for 2017. I am sooooo sad. He asked to be activate off the DL and then in his first game back on Friday night during what everyone thought may be his last game, he hit a pinch hit homerun. Yesterday, he got an RBI. I wonder if Mike will put him in the game today.
We were walking to our car after the game and my sister texted to say that they were nearby and were going to Four Hands Brewery which is just a few block from the stadium so we decided to meet them there. We've tried most of their brews and we actualIy went to the brewery once but it was too crowded. Well, come to find out, there is also seating upstairs. Ha! We enjoyed a brew and some tacos and then headed to McGurk's since Lisa and Randy had parked near there and walked over. It's been years since we've been to McGurk's. Since the weather was great, we sat outside on the patio and enjoyed another brew.
Great day of baseball, food, family and brews.
