The St. Louis Cardinals may not have players in real contention for the MLB All-Star game but their AAA team does and they need fans’ help.

The St. Louis Cardinals usually have a few players up for consideration for the All-Star game that takes place every season. Yadier Molina is usually a shoe-in for a spot on the All-Star team. This just isn’t so this season.

This season the St. Louis Cardinals are seeing none of their players at the top of All-Star voting. That said, the following Cardinals are on the voting list (ranks as of June 11, 2018):

That is an awful lot of ‘not’ for the St. Louis Cardinals. This is a down year and the Cardinals which makes sense for the low fan voting. Of the names listed, Martinez, DeJong, and Ozuna (and maybe Pham) are the only names listed above that would interest me as deserving of a vote.

Moving from the Cardinals to the Memphis Redbirds, a great deal of players find themselves higher on their respective AAA All-Star voting. The following players appear on their All-Star voting list (ranks as of June 14, 2018):

To me, Ravelo and Mercado deserve to be AAA All-Stars. These two have been great for the Redbirds.

But wait, there’s more! The Memphis Redbirds play in AutoZone Park and the organization needs your help to reach the top of the “Best of the Ballparks – Triple A” with Ballpark Digest.

If you have never visited the Redbirds’ ballpark, you are really missing out. Many have called AutoZone Park the mini-Busch Stadium. The ballpark is so nice and the coaching staff has had the privilege of seeing St. Louis Cardinals players of the like of Molina, Albert Pujols, Carpenter, and Martinez.

Amenities include some sweet suites, delicious Memphis BBQ, $2 beer Thursdays, and all-you-can-eat nights. Saturday nights also feature firework nights. This is a very family-friendly park and St. Louis Cardinals fans should make the trip to Memphis without question.

As of the writing of this piece, Memphis’ ballpark is winning in the first round of the head-to-head competitions. AutoZone Park is winning 74% to 26% in favor of Principal Park which is home of the Iowa Cubs. Therefore, the Iowa Cubs must lose in favor of the St. Louis Cardinals’ AAA club stadium.
