Mayor congratulates Springfield Cardinals on plans to host St. Louis Cardinals players

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Springfield Mayor Ken McClure is pleased to learn that the St. Louis Cardinals plan to use Hammons Field in Springfield as a location for its taxi squad. A "taxi squad" is a group of players, not on the active roster, who will stay ready to provide fill-in players as necessary for a big-league team.

 “Congratulations go out to the Springfield Cardinals! Springfield is proud to serve as a host for the St. Louis Cardinals players and I see this as a vital step towards economic vitality as our community reopens,” McClure said. 

It is unlikely fans will have access to watching the St. Louis Cardinals at Hammons Field as no games will be played and players will social distance from others to reduce the spread of COVID-19. A release from the Springfield Cardinals reassures that “this does not mean that the Minor League Baseball season has officially been cancelled.”
