Ah, the weekend! Yes, sadly, our second weekend without baseball is here but with every day that passes, we’re one step closer to the 2014 season. You are no doubt keeping up with the major news of the Cardinals, so you’re already well aware of awards received and finalists named and every single rumor being floated around out there. So, instead, a look at some things you perhaps haven’t yet read about the Cardinals yet.
Fall weekends are great for parades, right? And that’s exactly what’s happening in Matt Adams’ hometown this morning — a parade just for him, in his hometown of Philipsburg, Pa.
Matt is the first Philipsburg native and first Philipsburg-Osceola graduate to play in the World Series, according to the Altoona Mirror, which also said:
The talk of the town and the subject of many Facebook statuses and tweets on Twitter, Adams will be celebrated and honored on Saturday with a parade. It’s being called P-O Proud Day Featuring Matt Adams, and will include his parents, Jamie and Lisa. The community is encouraged to hang red and white ribbons in support of Adams, and people can line the parade route.
Hopefully Matt has improved his parade wave since that curtain call in the picture above. Anyway, pretty cool honor — especially in the middle of Pirates country.
