Redbirds vs Zephyrs

Monday, June 25th, 2007

I felt like I’d stepped into a parallel universe watching 2 of my favorite players from the turn of the century Cardinals each homer in their first plate appearance of Sunday’s minor league contest between the Memphis Redbirds and the New Orleans Zephyrs. Fernando Tatis went deep off Blake Hawksworth in the top of the first, while Rick Ankiel answered with his 20th homer of the season in the bottom half. Full marks for the player intro music selections, especially All Along the Watchtower for Ankiel – the Cardinals could learn a lot from the Redbirds in this regard.
