Suppan to throw out first pitch before game 3


Suppan to throw out first pitch before game 3

CREATED Oct 11, 2011

If you're heading down to St. Louis for game three of the NLCS, below is a glimpse at what the day will look like.

There will be a special pre-game rally in Ballpark Village from 4:00-6:30 where fans can listen to live music and get autographs from former Cardinals, Mike Matheny and Jack Clark.

Also, the first 40,000 fans in attendance will receive a rally towl featuring the rally squirrel. If you haven't seen the highlight of the squirrel that ran across home plate during the Cardinals Phillies series, you're probably not reading this blog.

Also, most interesting to me, is that former Cardinals and Brewers starter Jeff Suppan will throw out the first pitch. I'm not making this up. Suppan is still a bit of a hero in St. Louis, but more of a goat in Milwaukee. I'm not sure what it will mean in regards to the actual game, but I'd be much happier if Suppan were starting in place of Chris Carpenter.
