The Captains Tuesday Nite Heckling Club

It’s the second day of baseball week and it’s the second home game of the Cardinals 2014 season.  It’s a #2ForTuesday waiting to happen!  Here’s two pictures from my first Cardinal game of the year.

 Heckling Opener


 Right field heckle crew


As you can see, it was pretty grand.  I managed to score some cheap seats to the game, and called in the crew to get rowdy.  Captain Mike has some free time now that he’s in town, Ludlow took off after school, DJ and Reed took the Metrolink from up north, and Officer Tim found a good parking space.  6 unruly guys and a whole lot of baseball.  This will be the 5th season of the Heckling Club, and the first meeting of 2014 was a rousing success.

The top picture is at a bar in the new Ballpark Village attraction.  We got to stadium early to check out the new digs, and I have to say it is pretty impressive.  It’s bigger than I would have thought.

The bottom picture is the gang, minus Officer Tim, in the right field stands.  We found plenty of empty seats near the right fielder and dug in to start slinging trash.  We heckled Reds right fielder Jay Bruce mercilessly all night.  No profanity, but often times much worse.  My favorite was JAY BRUCE DROPPED A DUECE but there were lots of other good ones.  It was basically three hours of


After about an hour we could tell that our chants were starting to get to him.  He looked back several times right at us.  Then in the bottom of the 6th our tireless taunts paid off big time.  With the Cardinals down by a run, Jay Bruce misplayed a line drive that resulted in 2 runs being scored.  Our section went into a frenzy.  The game was lost for the Reds on that play, and we were all convinced it was because our heckling distracted Bruce into making an error.  Obviously.

It was a wild nite and a great way to start the season.  Look for many more Heckling Club stories in the near future.  It’s gonna be a fun season!
