Paul DeJong is now in the Cardinal record books - first SS in the Great History of the Cardinals to ever hit three HRs in a game. Also, was part of the second inning on Wednesday night when the Cardinals tied a MLB records with 8 extra base hits in one inning.

In addition, the Cardinal announcers on both TV and radio mention Illinois State a lot - a number of them are on Valley broadcast. John Rooney, Dan McLaughlin, and Scott Warnum. With the largest radio network and TV coverage going into 8 states - this can only be positive for the Redbirds baseball program.

Im so happy he’s doing so well for the Cardinals. ISU got a whole lot of mention this last week with Paul and playing Pittsburgh. Kevin Stallings son is a catcher for pit and they spent an inning taking about Kevin at ISU.

Somewhere to put this... when Cleveland manager Terry Francona came to the mound to remove Trevor Bauer today, Bauer turned and threw the ball over the centerfield fence.

...Joe Sheehan tweeted that the fact he cleared the CF wall is proof that the ball is juiced this year and someone else said that Angel Hernandez called it a strike...

There's a nice little close up clip out there too for the lip-readers, of Francona mouthing "What the **** is wrong with you?" Haha

Angel Hernandez is a disgrace to umpiring - same with C.B. Bucknor and Sam Holbrook.
