Just a quick note to the social media world, to congratulate the 6 members of our squad who will represent the Cardinals in New York for the All-Star game. Carlos Beltran, Yadier Molina, Allen Craig, Matt Carpenter, Adam Wainwright and Edward Mujica will all be a part of the festivities.
We couldn't have a better group to represent our team, our city and the game of baseball. They are the kind of players that you would want your kids emulating and watching.
As proud as we are of these 6 guys, we also know that a handful of others on our team have played well enough to be acknowledged at the All-Star game, but there are only so many spaces. The best thing about this group, is how much they want to win, and do their part for the team. This is usually how it works. The players that are playing the game the right way and not concerned with their individual achievements, look back at the end of the day and have won the admiration and respect of their teammates and also have the individual accolades as an added bonus.
Congrats guys and enjoy every minute of this great honor.
