Looking beyond the actions of a couple of front office staffers, who wouldn’t be recognized anywhere in public, are the awesome actions of the true St. Louis Cardinals doing things the Cardinal way.
On Monday, the Cardinals hosted the Minnesota Twins in an inter-league game. In the sixth inning, when the Twins needed a pinch hitter, “Sugar” Shane Robinson was announced. At this moment, Cardinal catcher Yadier Molina needed to spruce up the dirt near home plate.
Shane Robinson, was a Cardinal for 5 years and was receiving a standing ovation from the #BFIB. Yadi and pitcher John Lackey stalled until the fans settled down and the game continued. Post-game, Shane thanked the fans, Yadi and Lackey:
Thank you Cardinal fans for the ovation tonight. I will never forget it. Also appreciate Yadi and Lack for pausing so that it was possible.

This is the Cardinal way.
