About #PlayBallLikeACardinal

Inspired by Commissioner Rob Manfred's directive to encourage MLB teams to work to get more kids to play baseball and a variety of related games, #PlayBallLikeACardinal is a youth-focused video engagement initiative that like the MLB sponsored Play Ball Program, seeks to highlight and celebrate kids' love of the game of baseball and encourage them to play the game like their favorite (we hope Cardinals') players. Through #PlayBallLikeACardinal, the St. Louis Cardinals are seeking out young people who have a passion for the St. Louis Cardinals and are incorporating that passion into how they play the game - whether it is T-Ball, baseball, softball, wiffleball, stick-ball, tape-ball or any version of the great American Past Time.
