You've been hearing rumors that a Cardinal may be making an appearance up here in Gem City come Labor Day weekend. We're happy to confirm the rumors are true!

Cardinals pitcher Alex Reyes is coming to Kunes Country of Quincy on 36th Street Saturday, September 1st, for a meet and greet from 10:00am-Noon. I'll be there with the KICK van and plenty of swag starting at 9am to get you guys hyped for Reyes' appearance.

Reyes is currently on the DL following a June surgery to fix a torn tendon in his right lat, but will be on hand signing free autographs and meeting fans! You can bring your own item for Reyes to sign, or Kunes will have free action photos available as well.

Now, While I'm suppose I'm supposed to be antagonistic towards him, as the Cards did just sweep my Dodgers, and I'll be seeing them host the Dodgers on the 15th, I can't help but get a little excited about this. He's a damn good pitcher.

I'll be out there, I know our resident Cardinal fanatic Ben will be out there, so join us at Kunes Country of Quincy on 36th between Maine and Broadway. You don't want to miss this!
