Cardinals Nation: It’s go time

This post is by Dana Biermann, employee of The Salvation Army Midland Division in St. Louis and a lover of the Redbirds.

Won a World Series two years ago... unlike some other teams we know.

Won a World Series two years ago… unlike some other teams we know.

Wouldn’t it be embarrassing if we got swept by the Cubs this late in the season?

Answer: Like, really embarrassing.

Because we have the highest win percentage in baseball right now. We have Yadi, Carpenter, Waino. Not to mention the greatest (and most supportive) fans in major league baseball.

So what if someone from Chicago were to throw out the first pitch at OUR GAME. What if a CUBS FAN got to showboat to the mound in front of 47,000 Cardinals devotees like he owned the place??

That is in danger of happening.

On August 10, it is The Salvation Army’s Night at the Ballpark, and The Salvation Army of Chicago is battling us head on for the rights to throw out the first pitch. And who gets that throw is determined by YOU–us, or them.

If you’re a Cubs fan (boo!) you text MYCUBS to 80888 to make a $10 donation to The Salvation Army in Chicago.

But if you’re a CARDINALS FAN (cue musical flourish) text MYCARDS to 80888 to make a $10 donation to The Salvation Army that will stay right here in St. Louis. The most money raised will determine who throws out the first pitch.

And since we’re at the height of hunger in our city and with our food pantries going bare, your text will give local, struggling families the support they need to survive, AND save our city from embarrassment. It’s a win-win, folks.

Texting starts NOW and we have until August 8th to show Chicago who’s boss.

Our thumbs are ready for a workout. Are yours?
