One of my favorite things about the holidays is that it tends to bring out generosity in many people. Tonight, St. Louis Cardinals fans (or just anyone looking to support a great cause) will have the opportunity to partner with Cardinals alumni and media to raise money for Big League Impact over on the Noot News Podcast.
Founded by future Cardinal Hall of Famer Adam Wainwright, Big League Impact (per their website) partners with professional athletes through unique, sports-related fundraising platforms to help people meet basic human needs like food, clean water, medical care, shelter, and education in an effort to save lives, restore dignity, and instill hope. The current vice president of Big League Impact is newly acquired Cardinals starter Kyle Gibson, and some of their current player reps include Paul Goldschmidt, Tommy Edman, Aaron Nola, Miles Mikolas, Steven Matz, and Trevor Rosenthal.
I am one of the hosts of the Noot News Podcast alongside site contributors Andrew Wang and Sandy McMillian, and we are hosting a charity livestream to raise money for Big League Impact over on our YouTube channel from 6pm-10pm CT this evening (Tuesday, December 19th).
We'll be talking Cardinals baseball with an incredible guest lineup tonight, which features...
