Welcome to the Winter Warmup!
We’ve got some icy conditions in downtown St. Louis this weekend, but that’s why the Cardinals Winter Warmup was invented. It’s the annual time when Redbirds fans from all over fill up the Millennium Hotel for their chance to live and breathe Cards Baseball again. If you’ve never been to one of these, then it is truly a sight to behold. And this time, they’re all here looking at a humongous main-stage sign that proclaims World Champions.
Welcome to the stlcardinals.com booth, where you can find your free T-shirt! All you have to do is shout out the correct answers in the Redbirds Trivia contest that is ongoing throughout the weekend. Surf the computers that we’ve provided for fans, and get to know stlcardinals.com even better. Look for desirable 2006 Busch tickets while you’re here. Hosting the stlcardinals.com booth at least for the first couple of days is Mark Newman, Enterprise Editor for Major League Baseball Advanced Media. A former St. Louisan now based in New York City, Mark was last in town for a Game 5 clincher and an unforgettable Sunday parade. He also maintained the MLB.com World Series Blog last fall. You might find our own Matthew Leach, the Cardinals beat writer for MLB.com, around the booth during the three days as well.
Step right up, have lots of fun, and by all means leave your comments below here on the World Champions Guestbook. It’s your chance to tell others what it’s like being at the (sold-out) Winter Warmup, and to leave congrats for the Redbirds if you’d like.
