Fans flock to see Freese, others in Cardinals Caravan
Saturday, January 14, 2012
Fans braved the cold Friday and lined Dunklin and Lafayette Streets in hopes of getting a glimpse at some of the biggest names in the St. Louis Cardinals’ organization.
David Freese highlighted the Cardinals Caravan, which made a stop at Richardson Auditorium on the Jefferson City campus of Lincoln University. The World Series MVP was joined by Jaime Garcia, top prospect Shelby Miller, former Cardinals Kerry Robinson and John Costello, and broadcasters Mike Shannon and Jay Randolph.
Fans had the chance to meet the Cardinals, get autographs and take pictures with some of their favorites. The press had first dibs, though, as Freese and Co. spoke about the World Series, Albert Pujols, Tony La Russa and more.
Freese, who set a record with 21 RBI in the postseason, talked of his hometown hero status that’s played out the past few months.
