2 Cardinals legends received a nice gesture from a rival
This weekend, Albert Pujols and Yadier Molina made their final passes through Chase Field as the St. Louis Cardinals took on the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The two Cards legends had unforgettable weekends.
Although Molina missed the last two games, having to attend to personal business in Puerto Rico, he had three hits in Game 1 of the series.
Pujols, meanwhile, blasted home runs Nos. 691 and 692 in Game 2 of the series.
Prior to the series finale, the Diamondbacks honored both Cardinals legends, with Adam Wainwright to accept an honor on Molina’s behalf.
The Diamondbacks were kind enough to donate $10,000 each to charitable foundations in Pujols and Molina.

D’Backs Honor Cards
It’s a nice gesture from the Diamondbacks.
Both Pujols and Molina have been very charitable and active in the community of Saint-Louis since their arrival in the big leagues.
It’s a nice little farewell gift to the two legends and a classy gesture from the Diamondbacks organization.
Pujols and Molina have been honored at each of their final stops in select cities this year.
Both will retire at the end of the season, marking the end of an era in St. Louis.
But their impact will forever be felt by the baseball world, and even opposing teams have taken the time to honor these two great Cardinals by giving them gifts and honoring them with pre-game ceremonies before games. .
The baseball world will surely miss these two legends, and the game won’t be the same without them.
It’s worth trying to see these guys play one last time before they officially hang up their spikes.
