Former St. Louis Cardinals pitcher and current sportscaster Brad Thompson was the special guest at the Greenville Chamber of Commerce’s Cardinals Luncheon Thursday.
Over 80 people were in attendance.
Thompson answered questions, told stories and signed autographs. Thursday was the anniversary of his debut with the Cardinals in the major leagues and he remembers that day. He said his goal was to jog onto the field and not look around at all. When he did, he realized how many people were there.
