Major League Cardinals play Springfield Cardinals

It’s not often that you have the opportunity to photograph the World Champion St. Louis Cardinals in Springfield, Mo. On Monday, April 2, the St. Louis Cardinals traveled down to Hammons Field to take on their Double-A Springfield affiliate team.While the entire team didn’t travel because of the quick turnaround to Wednesday’s state-side MLB opening game in Miami, fan favorites and some Springfield Cardinals alumni made the trip such as Jon Jay, Matt Carpenter, David Freese and Matt Holliday.The coaching staff, including first year manager Mike Matheny and hitting coach Mark McGwire, also made the trip.

This offered a lot of great photos both on and off the field. Here are a few of my favorites:
