2009 Baseball and Softball Spirit Games

The 2009 Baseball and Softball Spirit Games were held Saturday July 11th, and hosted by the West County District.   Each district forms a Spirit team comprised of players from different parishes playing that sport at their parish.  Each Spirit team played two games on Saturday.  Baseball games were played at St Monica starting at 8:30am with the final game scheduled for 8:15pm.  The softball games were played at St Richard from the first game at 8:45am to the last scheduled for 6:15pm.  These games offer players from all parts of the city and county a chance to compete against each other in a non-playoff setting. 

Congratulations to all the players selected to represent their parishes and their districts at these game.  We also want to thank the West County district for hosting these games.  For more information go to the Baseball and Softball webpages under Spirit Games.  Click on one of these two galleries to see more photos, either 2009 Softball Spirit Games or 2009 Baseball Spirit Games.

2009 CYC - Saint Louis Athletica Night

CYC Night at Saint Louis Athletica.  Thank you to all the CYC teams that participated in the pre-game and half time ceremonies and to all the CYC fans that attended the game Sunday July 26th at the Anheuser-Busch Soccer Park.  Those that attended were treated to an excellent soccer game.  Saint Louis Athletica took a 1-0 lead mid-way through the first half on a nice finish by Niki Cross on a feed from Kendall Fletcher.  But FC Gold Pride evened the match with a late goal.  Athletica goalie, Hope Solo had a strong game, making three outstanding saves to help her team earn the tie, at 1-1.  At halftime Monsignor Louis Meyer was honored by Saint Louis Athletica when they dedicated the banquet room at the Soccer Park in his name.  A gallery of photos from this event can be viewed at

2009 CYC-St. Louis Cardinal Night

The 11th Annual CYC-St. Louis Cardinal Night was a success on a number of fronts.  Over 1500 CYC fans were treated to a  2-1 Cardinal win when Colby Rasmus launched his 10th inning walk-off home run deep into the right field bleachers. 

CYC players and families paraded around the field to start the pre-game activities.  Then Corey Jokerst of St. Paul's Parish and Dylan Engelman of St David's Parish threw the first strikes of the night as they threw out the ceremonial first pitches. 

In an effort to share the Cardinal experience with others in the community, the CYC donated tickets to Catholic Charities and to a number of homeless shelters. 

Thank you to all who participated and made for another fun evening at the old ball game.
