ST. LOUIS — Cardinals fans gathered at Busch Stadium as they awaited Friday night’s game.
The Cardinals are doing great in their division as they near the end of the regular season and head into the postseason as Albert Pujols chases history.
It’s a great time to be a Cardinals fan as anticipation fills the air in a series with the Atlanta Braves this weekend.
“It’s really exciting. Chasing the Albert home run is a big deal. I mean everyone. We even notice when they’re gone, even opposing fans cheer him on. And that’s kind of cool,” said Betty Knutson, a Cardinals fan who traveled to Friday’s game from Oklahoma.
Fenton fans said they had a special reason to be at Busch Stadium this weekend.
“We’re celebrating our anniversary, which makes it a very special weekend. Celebrating both the Cardinals’ victory and the 23rdapproxWedding day, we wouldn’t have known that when we were planning it,” said Ami and Tim Hammett. “But it’s good to have two for one.”
For longtime fans, this is the time of year when they feel that big momentum that will hopefully carry them and the team into the World Series.
“The Cardinals always seem to make it into the postseason, and this is Yadi’s and Pujols’ and maybe Waino’s final year. I hope we go all the way,” said Alicia Rodgers, who has been a Cardinals fan since 1982 when they won the World Series.
The first pitch on Friday night is at 7:15 p.m., the game on Saturday starts at 6:15 p.m. and the first pitch on Sunday is at 6:08 p.m
