We again participated in the United Cardinal Bloggers’ annual with recaps of the minor league team’s seasons from Johnson City through Memphis. You’ll also find a look at the team’s 2011 amateur player draft. I’m going to unceremoniously steal C70‘s description of the annual below the fold. He led the initiative as an editor and was a driving force behind its completion. My thanks to him for allowing us to participate again.
The United Cardinal Bloggers are proud to announce that their second season review publication in as many years is now available for download.
Happy Flight: The Story of the 2011 Cardinals
details the incredible season that the St. Louis squad had last year. Highlighted by photography from Erika Lynn and laid out in beautiful full color by Jon Doble, Happy Flight
brings you the highs and lows of the ’11 season, recaps the amazing postseason run, and includes features on Tony La Russa and Lance Berkman, among others. Inside the pages you will find the writing of 15 different Cardinal bloggers, from sites such as I70 Baseball
