BRINGING THE CARDINAL HEAT TO A COLD WINTER
PURPOSE, PERSEVERANCE AND POWER ARMS: THE 2013 ST. LOUIS CARDINALS
The 2013 United Cardinal Bloggers Publication
Compiled and Edited by Christine Coleman (Aaron Miles’ Fastball)
Foreword by Will Leitch
Another year, another deep run into October. While the sight of Cardinal red bundled up to fight off cold fall nights is becoming common, it still warms the heart of anyone in Cardinal Nation. The 2013 squad was no different, storming past Pittsburgh and Los Angeles to take the National League pennant before falling in six games to the Boston Red Sox in the Fall Classic.
From the first days in Jupiter to that last night in Boston and beyond, the United Cardinal Bloggers chronicled and analyzed St. Louis’s season and now are bringing that knowledge to you in their fourth annual writing collection. From the season of Shelby Miller to the career of Chris Carpenter, from the MVP-worthy work of Yadier Molina and Matt Carpenter to a recap of each postseason series, the UCB prepares you for 2014 with a look back at the successful season that just passed.
With a foreword from Will Leitch, senior editor at Sports on Earth, bloggers from across the internet, from sites large and small, come together in Purpose, Perseverance and Power Arms to give you a unique look at the Cardinals. In this collection you’ll find writing from 17 different Cardinal bloggers, plus a capsule on every player that wore the Birds on the Bat in 2013. Not only that, but you’ll get an overall look at what’s to come in 2014.
Purpose, Perseverance and Power Arms is available as an e-book at the Amazon Kindle store for $2.99. The book can be read on any of the devices in the Kindle family as well as by downloading Amazon’s free reading apps for your computer, tablet or smartphone. It may also be read in your browser directly on Amazon.
