Cardinals Unveil Chris Carpenter Statue

28mcj1d

The Cardinals officially announced Chris Carpenter’s plans to retire today at a 2pm press conference.

Immediately after the conference the press were led  to a new statue outside Busch Stadium in Carpenter’s honor, however, this statue will only be displayed every other season, in memory of how Carpenter was only able to pitch every other season due to injuries.

While not on display it will undergo a Tommy John surgery for statues, but we would not be surprised if it returned just in time for the playoffs.
