Down on the Cardinals farm: Hookers
Undoubtedly, one of the most unusual personalized jerseys we’ve seen at Busch Stadium is pictured below.
Classy stuff. We won’t be fooled again. But it just got a little harder.
On Monday afternoon, the following story came across our news feed.
The Cardinals actually have a player named, “Hooker”. He’s a RHP that pitches for the Cardinals Double-A affiliate in Springfield. And he was named the Texas League Player of the Week last week.
Deryk Hooker is listed as one of the Cardinals Top 5 pitching prospects by Scout.com. Zack Cox was the Cardinals first-round draft pick in 2010.
Those two creative some lethal sports headline potential. Local budding journalists will need to tread carefully in about five years.
