2018 CYC Cardinal Night

Despite the stormy weather, the 20th Annual CYC Cardinal Night, held on June 25, 2018, was a big hit!! After two rain delays, the Cardinals beat the Cleveland Indians by the score of 4-0.

A huge thank you to the more than 1100 CYC players, coaches, family, and friends who cheered on the St. Louis Cardinals, making it a fun night at the ballpark for participating CYC teams.

Players and teams joined together in the parade around the field prior to the game, and the top four parishes in number of tickets sold were able to throw out the 1st pitch or join in on batting practice. Samantha Duffy from All Saints (St. Peters) and Alex Cahill from Queen of All Saints threw out the 1st pitch. Jack Dolan from St. Clement and Dominic Morgan from St. Elizabeth Ann Seton participated in Batting Practice.

Be on the lookout in spring 2019 for details about the 21st Annual CYC Cardinal Night!!

2016 CYC Cardinal Night


Over 1,000 cheering CYC players and families could not help the Cardinals beat the Pirates on CYC Night, Wednesday, July 6. Most of those players and coaches paraded around the field at Busch Stadium before the game. Plus some special CYC guests were part of other pre-game activities. Based on the number of tickets each parish purchased, 2 parishes sent folks to watch batting practice and the top 2 parishes sent players to throw out the first pitch.

      L-R: Marshall Prost-Little Flower, Noah Jensen-St. Peter, Gage Wombacher-SESR and Madison Collins-St. Clement.

Marshall and Noah came for batting practice, but due to rain there was no batting practice. However they did get to see Greg Garcia, Alydmes Diaz, Colton Wong and Matt Adams take infield practice. Plus each of them received a ball as the players went back into the dugout. Then Gage and Madison were the first of the youth leagues to throw out 1st pitches. All were congratulated by Fredbird after their toss. The only thing that could have made the night more fun would have been a Cardinal victory.

2015 CYC Cardinal Night

Over 1,250 CYC players, coaches and family members attended the 2015 CYC Night at the Cardinals. Great turnout! On the field, at batting practice, the CYC was represented by Isaac Basi and his dad Mark from Little Flower and Josh Grover and his dad Phil from St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. Then came first pitches by 3rd grader, Jenna Graham from St. Mary Magdalen in Brentwood and Carter Lowe from Our Lady of Lourdes. Their moms, Amy and Beth accompanied them onto the field. Below are a few photos of the pregame activities including the on-field parade!
