Like they do every January, members of the St. Louis Cardinals will visit their fans in Champaign-Urbana.
This year, they do so as World Series Champions.

Cardinals players scheduled to appear include: outfielder Jon Jay, infielder Daniel Descalso; pitcher Brandon Dickson; and minor leaguer Matt Adams. Former Cardinal players Chris Duncan and Tom Lawless as well as Cardinals radio voice John Rooney will be on hand to reminisce about the 2011 championship season as well as to look ahead toward 2012.
The event will include a question-and-answer session before fans are allowed to get in line for autographs and photos. Thanks to Connect FM 93.5/95.3, Champaign-Urbana’s radio home of the Cardinals, for this information.
