It's less than 2-months till it's time to Play Ball in Major League Baseball...
That means it's time for the St. Louis Cardinals Caravan to Roll into Memphis..
Fans of the Cards, and their triple-A- affiliate, the Memphis Redbirds, turn out in force at AutoZone Park Monday..
They're here to see their favorite Birds, like outfielders Joe Mather and Brian Barton..
Both say it's crowded outfiled on the Big Club..
That'll make for some tough competition in Spring Training.
Joe Mather says"
"I aways say camp makes you better. We've got People pushing people for every position. 7-guys are battling for just 3 spots in the outfield."
Adds Brian Barton:
"We've got a lot of guys trying to make the Major Leagues for the First time..and a lot of guys like me trying to stay in the majors. The competition is tough, but it makes for a healthy situation for the team."
The Cardinals and Redbirds play 2-exhibitions April 3rd & 4th at AutoZone Park.
