Cardinals fans celebrate Yadier Molina Day

ST. LOUIS – As the St. Louis Cardinals To wrap up the regular season in Pittsburgh, St. Louis spends the week honoring two future Hall of Famers.

Ahead of their final home game of the regular season on Sunday, St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones announced special days honoring Yadier Molina and Albert Pujols.

Jones declared Tuesday, October 4th, as Yadier Molina Day, calling it “an ambassador for the St. Louis area and baseball fans worldwide.” Fans at the Cardinals team store said this is a day the all-star catcher deserves.

“He’s proven that he’s such a leader, a community leader who not only leads people on the field but makes a contribution to the St. Louis community,” said Gene Marquez. “Having Yadeir as Molina Day speaks volumes about what he means to St. Louis.”

Sid and Sebeth Spilseth, visiting from Utah, couldn’t say enough about Yadi’s play on the field.

“In the beginning, kick people out. Snap throws behind the batsman. It doesn’t matter, everything he does is exciting,” Sid said.

Sebeth said Molina has great control of play in the dugout and bullpen.

“From the minute he walked in, all his skill behind the plate. The way the pitches have always loved working with him,” he said. “Just knowing that when you saw him there you just had so much more confidence in how the game was going to go.”

David Fain is the manager of the Cardinals Team Store and he said fans are buying all Molina merchandise they can get their hands on.

“We’ve been chasing him all year. But that’s been the case with his wares for 15 years,” Fain said.

Wednesday, October 5th is officially Albert Pujols Day in St. Louis.
