A Nice Baseball Story

Former St. Louis Cardinals pitcher, 28 year old Rick Ankiel who failed in his return as a pitcher a few years ago, decided to go back to the minor leagues and give baseball a try as an outfielder. Riddled with injuries the past couple of years, he finally got his first shot back in the big leagues tonight and hit a 3 run homer in a 5-0 Cardinals win.

He struck out a bit and rarely walked while with the AAA club, but he definitely has some power (32 HR for the AAA club in 102 games). Tonight was a happy night for the Ankiel clan.
